Well ring the bell backwards and bury the axe
Fall down on your knees in the dirt
I'm tied to the mast between water and wind
Believe me you'll never get hurt
Our rings in the pawnshop, rains in the hole
Down at the 5 Points I stand
I'll lose everything,
But I won't let go of your hand

Well Peter denied and Judas betrayed
I'll pay with the roll of the drum
And the wind will tell the turn from the wheel
And the watchman is making his rounds
Well you'll leave me hanging by the skin of my teeth
I've only got one leg to stand
You can send me to hell,
But I'll never let go of your hand

Swing from the rope on a cross-legged tree
Signed in one-eyed Jacks blood
From Temple to Union
To LA and Grand
Walking back home in the mud
Now I must make my best of the only way home
Marley deals only in stone
I'm lost on the midway, I'm reckless in your eyes
Just give me a couple more throws
I'll dare you to dine with the cross-legged knight
Dare me to jump and I will
I'll fall from your grace,
But I'll never let go of your hand
I'll never let go of your hand

    General CommentA simply wonderful song. Delicate, touching and gruff, with a dose of surreal desperation.
