You were crying, for sure
And you hair was only adding to the flood
Just out of the shower
You looked like a red bird

I am a barbarian, sometimes
Been a barbarian, most of my life

Stop me if you're heard this one before
You're a babe when you're naked on the floor
You're a babe in the woods
And the rain is on its way

And I am a barbarian, sometimes
Been a barbarian, most of my life
But sometimes, sometimes
I'm a lamb upon your altar
I'm just a lamb when I recall
How I asked you
Where you want to be buried
And you asked me the name
Of the town where I was born
... the town where I was born
la da-da da da da

Darling it's finally the Fall
Finally I've not destroyed anything at all

You never knew
'cause I never told you
You never knew
'cause I never told you
You never knew
'cause I never told you

    General CommentIt's definitely "buried" and not married. And I'm 95% sure it's "rare bird" and not "red bird".
