We're gonna grow you up slowly
We're gonna chain you to steel
Sand in the hand
Will tell you in the end
Nest your veins and slumber
While I feed my arms for love murder

Round about, round about, round about now
Sorry to say, the others didn't make it
Round about, round about, round about now
You're my ticket outta here

Devour you slowly
Love you to death
Sand in the hand
Will tell you in the end
Nest your veins and slumber
For it's a-comin'

Round about, round about, round about now
Sorry to say, the others didn't make it
Round about, round about, round about now
You're my ticket out of here

Daddy's little blue eyes, I come for you
Ain't gonna leave her behind
Daddy's little blue eyes, I come for you
They're gonna leave you behind
Daddy's little blue eyes, I come for you
Ain't gonna leave her behind

Daddy's little blue eyes, I come for you
Ain't gonna leave her behind
Daddy's little blue eyes, I come for you (Ooooh)
Ain't gonna leave her behind, behind, yeah (Ooooh)

Leave her behind
Ain't gonna leave her behind

Blue eyes, oh ho
You're my ticket out of here

    General CommentThis song is so raw and perfect. Whenever it comes on I usually have to play it a couple times before I've had enough of it.

    General CommentI love this song. It still gives me goosebumps after all these years
    It sounds like Arno Carstens is singing the most deep and profound words. But what do they mean??? I don't understand these lyrics. Someone please enlighten me. I thank you in advance
