Skyclad - A Dog In The Manger Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • 2 A.M. a southbound junction - innocence takes flight
  • Common sense has lost all function - stranded in the night.
  • The albatross has flown the nest - he's breaking family ties
  • He recalls his mother weeping with her hands held to her eyes.
  • His alcoholic father was too drunk to know or care
  • The rod not spared had spoiled this child - his only son and heir.
  • The city lights have pulled him southward - magnets in his mind
  • Where the streets are paved with gold and lady luck is kind.
  • "The boy only wants some attention - he's wasting our time
  • He'll never survive on his own - for he's no son of mine."
  • There's thousands more just like him - seeking love they've never found
  • No hearth and home to call his own - our fox has run to ground.
  • His father taught him right from wrong (and beat him black and blue)
  • Caressed the boy with his clenched fist the only way he knew.
  • He never went to school that much 'cause he could not disguise
  • The weals and bruises on his legs - the rings around his eyes.
  • He only needed a family to help him to shine
  • All he has is a ticket to ride on the poverty line.
  • He stirs from his gin and tamazapam coma
  • To find while he slept someone has done him over
  • His things are all missing or strewn 'cross the floor
  • And he can't quite recall the events of the evening before.
  • As cars race by our young prince waits behind his cardboard shield
  • "OXFAM" crown upon his head - his thumb a sword to wield
  • A shoddy-clad knight of the road - the quest is underway
  • Drawn by glowing street lights in the night - and smoke by day.
  • The city lights have pulled him southward - magnets in his mind
  • Where the streets are paved with gold and lady luck is kind.
  • "The boy only wants some attention - he's wasting our time"
  • (he only needed a family to help him to shine)
  • "He'll never survive on his own - for he's no son of mine"
  • (all he has is a ticket to ride on the poverty line
