I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, let's pick a fight.
We hunt for trouble tonight.

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, boys, we're right!
We hunt for trouble

Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
You know we're right!

We hunt for trouble
With our fingers dipped in blood.
We hold the rifles
With a hangman's heart.

If reunited
'Fore the last sun lie,
The snake
They cut in the parts
That come back alive for 'em.

Brother Benjamin is off in France.
We're taking Trenton back again.
The garrison of Hessians will fall.
They say Delaware will freeze a man.

We chasin' sovereigns
Across the Styx and dodging ice floes.
It's all on Honeyman,
Our mole inside the ivy that grows.

So unnatural to see this leaf
So far from its home.
Must deracinate the weed,
Drive it out of the loam.

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, let's pick a fight.
We hunt for trouble tonight.

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, boys, we're right!
We hunt for trouble

Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
You know we're right!

With fingers frozen from tracking
And groping and trapping,
Found the trouble and coupled
At the mouths that prize the purse from the apt.

And the victim claimed by the slow mechanism
That broke its opponents back.
While the crimson coats were bending elbows in half,
WE ATTACKED!

I know you noticed the battle.
It don't need quoting.
It's spoken over ad nauseum.
Darling, the sharpest story.

Every veteran, politician, talking head'll
Get on the pedestal,
Spin the saga any way
That will make their means our end.

We, we've got ourselves a fight song
For the wool they'll pull over your eyes.
Tell the devil that we're coming right home
Tonight, tonight.

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, let's pick a fight.
We hunt for trouble tonight!

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, boys, we're right!
We hunt for trouble

Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
You know we're right!

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, let's pick a fight!
We hunt for trouble tonight!

I know it's hopeless, Hell
Ain't big enough to hold us back.
Come on, boys, we're right!
We hunt for trouble

Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight, tonight.
You know we're right!

    General CommentI'm not certain but I think the lyric is:
    "Brother Benjamin is off in france"
    not
    "For the regiment is off in france"

    like referring to benjamin franklin.
    but i could be wrong

    General Commentoh and I think its:
    "We'll take Trenton and get back again"
    not
    "We'll take a trek and get back again"

    cause this song's about the Battle of Trenton

    Lyric CorrectionMost of the lyrics here are way off. The actual lyrics are more like this:

    (chorus)

    we hunt for trouble with our fingers dipped in blood
    we hold our rifles with a hangman's heart
    if reunited for the last sunlight
    the snake they cut in the parts
    will come back alive for 'em

    brother benjamin is off in france
    we're taking trenton back again
    the garrison of hessians will fall
    they say delaware will freeze a man

    we're chasing sovereigns across the styx and dodging iceflows
    it's all on honeyman, our mole inside the ivy that grows
    so unnatural to see this leaf so far from its home
    must deracinate the weed, drive it out of the loam

    (chorus)

    with fingers frozen from tracking and groping and trapping
    found the trouble and coupled at the mouths that prize the purse from the apt
    and the victim claimed by the slow mechanism that broke its opponent's back
    while the crimson coats were bending elbows in half we attacked

    i know you noticed the battle; it don't need quoting
    it's spoken over ad nauseum; darling, the sharpest story
    every veteran, politician, talking head'll get on the pedestal,
    spin the saga any way that will make their means our end
    we, we've got ourselves a fight song for the wool they'll pull over your eyes
    tell the devil that we're coming right home tonight, tonight

    (chorus, chorus)
