"Murder" as written by Henry Nicola Mancini, Kendrick Duckworth, Mark Henry, Brad Jordan, Jayceon Terrell Taylor and Norman Gimbel....
The blood of this family it mingles
With the clay in this stinking riverbed
I tie the boy down and tear his mother's gown
It's okay, she's already dead

I'll sell the boy and the horses
To the snake you cannot see

I cut open the white man
And take from his woman too
If it were up to me, all the white faces would bleed
Bleed and bleed and bleed, it's truth

Murder, it's murder
Murder, it's murder

Empty plains echo with empty screams
There's a wagon on the highland
A father and his girl, both are heading south
I tie the boy and the horses

Then you use the skills of the wolf
I don't use a bullet
Get close enough, I can use my knife
My knife

I cut open the white man
And take from his woman too
If it were up to me, all the white faces would bleed
Red's a better color, it's truth

Let the blood out, let it flow
Cut the blood out, let it flow
Kill the blood out, let if flow
Like a river let it flow

Let it flow like a river
Let it flow like a river
Let if flow like a river into the sea

    General Commentnice job. i think the one line is "one cut to open the white man" because i'm fairly certain the song is about native americans attacking white men in vengeance or something.

    General CommentI think it goes like this:

    The ???? family in ????
    with the clay of the sinking river bed
    I tie the boy down and tear his mother's gown
    it's ok, she's already dead.

    ???? the boy and the horses to the snake you cannot see
    I cut open the white man and take from his women too.
    If it were up to me all the (their) white faces would bleed
    bleed and bleed and bleed this town.

    Murder. It's murder
    Murder. It's murder

    With a (the) blade take 'em with empty streams (doesn't make sense haha).
    There's a wagon on the heartland.
    Father brought his girl, both are headed south.
    I tie the boy and the horses.
    ???? use the skins of a wolf
    I don't use the bullets, get close enough I can use my knife.
    My knife!

    I cut open the white man and take from his women too.
    If it were up to me all the (their) white faces would bleed
    ?????????????????? and child (?)

    Cut the blood out, let it flow
    Cut the blood out, let it flow
    Cut the blood out, let it flow
    Like a river
    Let it flow or white man flow, like a river
    Let it flow, like a river
    Let it flow, like a river into the sea.

    General Commenti talked to the lead singer of HORSE the band personally, Nathan Winneke.

    He said he saw a special or was reading a book of a lot of western mini-stories, one was called Murder by Blueduck, an indian who was seeking revenge and vengeance on the white men who took over his land and pillaged his village. striaght from the "horse's" mouth heh.
