Bleary eyed and angel faced
Leaving town and making haste
He half expected to be chased
There was not a living soul around then

Why should he leave it up to them
Why should he trust their judgment when
all they could do was look at him
Beg him in his mercy to untie them
Everything they said was just a lie then

One way or the other, his wound was gonna mend
One way or the other, this thing was gonna end
One way or the other, yeah

He could see his fathers ghost
Raising up that bottle in a toast
Come on son why don't you make the most
of this most peculiar situation

He sat listening to them on the stairs
They laid on the sofa unaware
Hands all red and sweating bodies bare
He waited 'til he was good and ready
Lifted up his gun and held it steady

One way or the other, he had to say goodbye
One way or the other, someone was bound to die
One way or the other, one way or the other

Underneath the hill where no one goes
In the vacant fox den nobody else knows
They lie locked forever in the throat
of that damnable association

Bleary eyed and angel faced
Leaving town and making haste
He half expected to be chased
There was no more mercy to be found here
There was not a living soul around then

One way or the other, his wound was gonna mend
One way or the other, this thing was bound to end

One way or the other, he had to say goodbye
One way or the other, someone was bound to die
