Beggar’s Guild

  roadkill2  Roadkill Ghost Choir, single of the day

Oh put it on, take it off real quick

on the bottom of the pile, I’m feelin sick.

You never cross my mind, not by baby night, no-

you keep me in the beggar’s guild.

So I sleep all day and I dream all night

with the bottle in my hand I take the devil’s side.

I smile real big just to keep it hid

oh, the truth about my lack of will.

So I run like hell from the city’s glow

I lose my name, I pass before the folks I used to know

If I go far away from the city grates

and the long reach of the government.

Oh all alone in a cold north sea,

in the blue sky above a plane flew over me.

The banner it pulled said “you are a fool,”

“did you really think you’d ever win?”

I’m taking off my dirty skin.

There is nothing to refute my sin.

I fear no one

I fear no one but you.

(Don’t … )

I lie only to tell the truth.


Oh the steep demands of the higher call

oh you (palm?) all the words so the cogs won’t stall.

I burned my clothes and I gut my soul

and pretend that I was never born (ah yeah).

Oh my oh my, look what you have done

Spit your head out on the floor like you’re the chosen one.

I give her my heart but she wanted no part

so I sold it to an antique store.

So I dug a hole four thousand miles down

To the center of the Earth where I will not be found.

Memories of the moon singing see you soon,

oh I was always partial to the sun.

I was picked up by two men of the law

They said we’re taking you downtown, forget about your call.

Hell’s no place for a wandering face

Go take it up with Beelzebub.

You laugh as you pull out the rug

I was never really much in love.

I fear no one

I fear no one but you.

(Don’t … )

I lie only to tell the truth.
