lyrics

- oh my darling golden ones, oh what have we become - just like they always said we would, well fed and fat and numb - last night i went out walking, heard the wind rush through the pines, looked up saw there hanging on a nail an old bucket of turpentine - well i put it down like whiskey and i set myself ablaze - figured i’d burn in the hear-after, might as well burn on my last day - i said i death of influence must grow strong - pour me one more shot i’ll sing you one more traveling song - i said the death of influence must grow strong, if we’re ever to get on - at night my dreams are riddled with visions of fire raining from the skies, whirlwind round a chorus of a million children’s cries - bloodthirsty mobs going out to even up the score - all they ever want round here is more more more more and more - i said the death of influence must grow strong - pour me one more shot i’ll sing you one more traveling song - i said the death of influence must grow strong, if we’re ever to get on - I’ve seen the eyes of jesus in the ones with no tongues to speak - i’ve seen the eyes of satan in the powerful elite - seen the eyes of compassion in the ones who killed in wars - i’ve seen the eye of wisdom in an old and battered whore - seen the eyes of death himself in a baby just newborn - seen the eyes of liberty in a bible torn and burned - seen the eyes of injustice in that judge whose gavel does decide - I’ve seen the eyes of safety in the ones with no where left to hide - I said the death of influence must grow strong pour me one more shot I’ll sing you one more traveling song - i said the death of influence must grow strong, if we’re ever to get on -
