cool, cool, bitter and cold
the heart is metal and
the times are bold
the ku klux kross is tall and old
i went to see it,
i went to see it

a fire in the hearth to warm your hide
winter keeps everyone inside
mardi gras' just a carpet ride
but everyone's dirty by ash wednesday
everyone's dirty by ash wednesday

and i hear you hear

you come into this graveyard town
let your good-times lay you down
you look around and scratch and cough
for some old bones

red white and blue leaves on the trees
betsy ross and the devil make three
so light a match, and hold a stone
until they call you
until they call you

burn your crops with a fire inside
call your mother on the phone and lie
sun-drenched, talk about it everyday
blessed with a miracle

the kids were throwin' stones at
a bird on the street
the birds are just tryin' to make ends meet
so to make ends meet i threw a stone
and kids fell fallin'
and kids fell fallin'

and i hear you here
