lyrics

Dominic’s glock hit the winter
The shot rang out through the centre
All those they left in the middle
Were left to work out the riddle

The thief had left in red slivers
and dragged on back to the river
A crimson trail that made us shiver
Some human mail to deliver

Dominic’s glock hit his pocket
Our eyes went back in their sockets
But lying there in a sandal
Was half a foot and an ankle

The thief had sprung he had hobbled
And an escape he had cobbled
Through bush and brush he had broken
To where the river lay open

You said you’d sign this book for me
You said you’d write a song for me
You said you’d reply to emails every night
You said you’d sign this book for me
You said you’d write a song for me
You said you’d reply to emails but you lied

Well things got tough over summer
Guess I forgot to remember
Anyway, the thief decided
To cross the river unguided

Had he known in the riverbed
A crocodile was sat unfed
He might have gone another way
and not have lost both feet that day

You said you’d sign this book for me
You said you’d write a song for me
You said you’d reply to emails every night
You said you’d sign this book for me
You said you’d write a song for me
You said you’d reply to emails but you lied
