lyrics

Crazy Horse & Violence © R L Fountain 2017
Crazy Horse and Violence were destined to be lovers
Middle East and promised peace bore the perfect covers
Illegitimate his father cried when he discovered
That he bore a child of war

Born in Indiana Crazy hunted on the weekends
Father said to son you ain’t my boy if you’re a weaklin’
Jesus said to Mary don’t talk back till I’m done speakin’
At 19 Crazy joined the force

Wherever you will go
I will follow
Blood brothers made a pact
Beg steal or borrow
If we loose today, maybe tomorrow
Will you choose to engage or fire away

Now Violence is immortal and Crazy faces death
Even though they’re courtin’ some times he wonders who he’s with
SO they traded hearts in that desert park cause there’s nothin’ left to live for
Time goes by when you’re sinking

Crazy’s diggin’ ditches for the stolen ad forgotten
Best to keep em’ covered up in case the spoils are rotten
Violence seduced Crazy but he paid for what he’s gotten
Their children march off to war

Wherever you will go
I will follow
Blood brothers made a pact
Beg steal or borrow
If we loose today, maybe tomorrow
Will you choose to engage or fire away

Fire away . . . .
The sun is setting on the courtyard down below
Everyone is watching every dance step that you show
I’m sure that is my target yeah I’ve got him in my sights
One more step one pirouette draws the curtain on the light
The light the light the firelight waltzes in my face
Someone shouts to take him out and blow them all away
There behind the windscreen two boys like you and me
Violence tares my heart out and suddenly I see
It’s just another fucked up dream upon the TV screen so fire away

Noor-Eldeen & Saeed and the children who were nameless
Caught on tape the escapades made the trigger happy famous
Purple hearts and lucky stars awarded to the shameless
All my Heroes killed Cowboys
All my Heroes kill Cowboys

Wherever you will go
I will follow
Blood brothers made a pact
Beg steal or borrow
If we loose today, maybe tomorrow
Will you choose to engage or fire away

Wherever you will go
I will follow
Blood brothers made a pact
Beg steal or borrow
If we loose today, maybe tomorrow
Will you choose to engage or fire away
