Somewhere, he lost it in a turn
Now trouble seems to fit him like a glove
First come, first served, he's serving it back
He travels light, without a pack, without love
He comes from nowhere and he turns on his own
Late for the hanging, yes he's headed for the moon
And hang 'em high

Leather cross his thighs
Blasting out the night, his cap hides his eyes
One eye on the road, price upon his head
One ear to the ground, he's listening to the dead

He comes from nowhere and he turns on his own
Late for the hanging, yes he's headed for the moon
And hang 'em high

Blind to himself, and he's laughing up his scheme
Looking back in anger, the city is relieved
Vision of light, child of the night passing by

Blind to himself, he's laughing up his scheme
Looking back in anger, the city is relieved
A vision of light, child of the night passing by

Leather cross his thigh
Blasting out the night, his cap hides his eyes
One eye on the road, price upon his head
One ear to the ground, he's listening to the dead

He comes from nowhere, and he turns on his own
Late for the hanging, yes he's headed for the moon
And hang 'em high

    General CommentHow do you know? There is obviously the mathematical possibility in infinity, that other people, beings, e.g. spirit people inhabit this universe too. Don't be naive, we are aiming nuclear annihilation at each other and act like we are safe, heheh, and we began by calling it a peace-keeper. A hacker will probably initiate world war free! lol... not
