Blood-soaked mattress, blood-soaked hands
Chicago Police get their man
Counter Intelligence was in place
When O'Neil slipped the drugs right into his drink

Layin' asleep in his bed
One shot out and hundreds in
Hanrahan commended the cops
We all know friends make the best enemies, anyway

Blood-soaked mattress, blood-soaked hands
Chicago Police get their man
Counter Intelligence was in place

"You can kill the revolutionary," he said
"But you cannot kill the revolution"
And you have killed a revolutionary
But you have not killed the revolution

Layin' asleep in his bed
One shot out and hundreds in
Hanrahan commended the cops
We all know friends make the best enemies, anyway

December 4th, 1969
December 4th, 1969
December 4th, 1969
December 4th, 1969

The seasons have gone and left me here
In winter's arms this frozen year
The seasons have gone and left me here
In winter's arms, in winter's arms

"You can kill the revolutionary," he said
"But you cannot kill the revolution"
And you have killed a revolutionary
But you have not killed the revolution
