Graham Parker OK Heironymous Lyrics

Last updated:

G                                      C
I break a heart in a thousand places, she makes a slur against other races
G C D
He rejects all of the unpretty faces, sticks them full of knives
G C
I take a shot at birds flying south, he takes the gun barrel into his mouth
G C D
She takes a rope and ties up the house, with the kids inside
G C
They just want to curl right up and die
G Am D
Them and us are only passing by
G C D Em
Hey Hieronymous I know where your garden grows
F C D
I know where your bloody roses bloom
G C D Em
Hey Hieronymous Tell me what delights there are
F C D
Right outside this window or inside this room
G C
Just taste the odor of burning skin, the pitchfork tongues and the rot within
G C D
The torture victim's wiped-out grin nothing can erase
G C
Somebody's pouring salt on a wound, scooping out monkey's brains with a spoon
G C D
Working on warfare up on the moon, that's the latest phase
G C
We just want to curl right up and die
G Am D
You and me are only passing by (CHORUS)(GUITAR SOLO)
G C
Germans and Turks and English nerks spew out of doorways going beserk
G C D
Inside of everyone someone lurks, they don't even know
G
Bring them all in, yeah, they're welcome here
C
You can't sell your work? then cut off your ear
G C D
Put it right on the table there, all tied up in bows

(chorus) (repeat chorus) (outro same as verse)
