"The Hatchet Song" as written by and Mark Linkous....
There's too much confusion today
How can I assure it's to shy away
And he blew his brains out with a pistol I say
To cover his arse or make a point someway

Meet me on
Lonely street
Meet me on
Lonely street
Now

Stabbed me in the back you know she threw a hatchet
Buried in my chest when I turned to catch it
And my lucky days are stuck in quarantine
I thought I got some kind of warranty

Meet me on
Lonely street
Meet me on
Lonely street

Meet me on
Lonely street
Meet me on
Lonely street

    General Commentone of my favorite songs I've ever heard. the minimalism of the chorus is just so compelling.
