Closer she smiled telling me not to worry
I said I didn't know and I don't now
But I won't let you fall if you come down
Oh she was waiting
On the wine dark sea with skinny lips of salt
Better to give to thee
Then to all the senators in the hall
And we oh oh oh for knowing all
That I never knew
Oh oh oh for knowing all
That I never knew

Well the suitors they're complaining it's a bitter taste of man
I seen them over explaining the roles in which they stand
But don't you hear them because they want you to
Don't you give them because they love you in all your splendor
You're breaking it on the floor

There's been a dead reckoning with the government
Though they seem to know their plan
They're drawing all their lots to see who's the better man
But don't you love them because they need you to
They wont give you unless they are better then you
So go on with your lover and leave it all alone

I seen the blood escaping man
But do not overcome him if you can
I seen the blood escaping man
But do not overcome him

In your hand that holds the paper that wouldn't let us out last night
What made you come back
Return at first light
Well she gave me, she gave me more then the night
And I fear for, I fear for my life
We got to go home now 'cause they are making it with your wife

I seen the Blood Escaping Man
But do not overcome him if you can
I seen the Blood Escaping Man
But do not overcome him in your hand that holds the path that leads you
Do not overcome your master plan

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong they should be:

    closer, she smiles telling not to worry
    i said i didn't know and i dont now
    but i won't let you fall if you come down
    ooh she was waiting on the wine dark sea
    with skin and lips of salt
    better to give to the, then to all the senators in the hall

    and we all for knowing
    all that we never know
    we're all for knowing
    all that we never know

    well the suitors been complaining, its a bitter taste of man
    i seen them eating and drinking and vying for her hand
    (some can hardly stand)
    i seen her walking too up the widow's walk
    i tell her to keep it on i tell her don't give up
    'cause i swear that he's coming
    just wait a littlle more time

    There's been a dead reckoning with the government
    Though they seem to know the plan
    they're drawing all their lots to see who's the better man
    and then the winner come and grabs her in stride
    takes her to bed and makes her their bride
    but (i reckon) he gonna come home and see you
    makin it with his wife

    i've seen the blood escaping man
    but do not overlook him if you can
    i've seen the blood escaping man
    ut do not overlook him
    in her heart she holds a candle
    that guides her through the night

    she came to me in secret and whispered at first light
    please madame for all your beauty it's not me you want-
    i saw a bum in town who's body it leaves no blood
    toady as the suitors come there's a ragged beggar behind

    i'd love to be your lover but there's a ragged beggar behind

    've seen the blood escaping man
    but do not overlook him if you can
    i've seen the blood escaping man
    ut do not overlook him in your heart
    you hold the lights a candle that leads you
    underneath the rags
    it is your man
