"The Hammer Hits the Nail" as written by and Desjardins Wahl....
The hammer hits the nail
And the nail splits the thumb
My finger's peeling off the bone
In this unhappy home
Love's coaxed into growing
On the way to the gallows
Tracking down crime
Into the shallows
Baby, what's the deadline
In this town without pity?
A bed-to-bed ambush is waiting
On the deserted side of the street
Don't give me dirty looks
Because I'm going blind
I'm going blind to a fate worse than death

The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
Precious last minutes slip
Through my fingers
The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
You can't go numb
When you see what's coming
The good die young
Before love starts growing
Before the bloody badge starts
Showing those marked for going

The Earth's in ashes burning
So how can we part?
They still haven't found the car
That crushes little flowers
Someone's crying in my sleep, crying in my sleep
The door to this world got slammed
In a poor girl's face

The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
Precious last minutes slip
Through my fingers
The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
You can't go numb
When you see what's coming
The good die young
Before love starts growing
Before the bloody badge starts
Showing those marked for going

The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
Precious last minutes slip
Through my fingers
The good die young
Love's coaxed into growing
You can't go numb
When you see what's coming
The good die young
Before love starts growing
Before the bloody badge starts
Showing those marked for going
