lob some spit at the window
watch it drop down the pane
it's only the guilty who concern themselves
with clearing their names

you bring tidings of hope, false tidings
when you come here
there's two friends who did me wrong that you're protecting
it's so clear

and when you speak it's those two who speak through you
who'll speak for me?
the burning and the electricity

sun goes down San Francisco
friends are hard to find
chew them up just as quick as I can find them
try to clear my mind

remember hours at the table
gauze-white light bleeding through
if there's one thing that I'm not going to do tonight
it's die for you

'cause when you speak it's those two who speak through you
who'll speak for me
the burning and the electricity

    Song MeaningThis song is based on the film "The Indestructible Man" starring Lon Chaney Jr. The title references a quote from his character, Charles "The Butcher" Benton:

    "It was all your idea. You planned the whole job. You hired us. When you found out I stashed the money, you figured it was time for me to die. You got those two crumbs to turn state's evidence on me, you stinkin' rotten mouthpiece."
