River of Shame
words and music copyright DK Bridger 2008

A bucket of blood, a drop of rain,
A thousand wars in Heavenís name
Pull down the sun, make the river ashamed.
Tie love down.

She wraps thorns like a ribbon around your heart.
Such a beautiful gift, her body falls apart.
Donít let her body sell you that Mexican getaway,
Or youíre lost in the dark on a hot Mexican highway
With the vampires in her hair,
Those zombie cold black eyes.
The daggers in her stare
Seem so silent and wise.

If youíre alone in the dark, she'll help you find the way.
Conditions of the heart, blind and afraid.
She'll rip out your heart and toss it away.
She won't stop, no matter what you say.

Her letters leave marks,
Smell like sulfur and burn.
There are monsters in her heart
And demons in her words.

A bucket of blood, a drop of rain,
A thousand wars in Heavenís name
Pull down the sun, make the river ashamed.
Tie love down with a golden chain.

Let nobody buy the diamond in your heart
For a price or a meal or a castle on a needle in the park.
Donít let nobody buy it for less than the Devil will pay
When youíre out of luck on that hot mexican highway
With the vampires in her hair,
Those zombie cold black eyes.
The daggers in her stare
Seemed so silent and wise.

Her lovers left marks,
They smell like sulfur and burn.
There are monsters in her heart
And demons in her words.

A bucket of blood, a drop of rain,
A thousand wars in Heavenís name
Pull down the sun, make the river ashamed.
Tie love down with a golden chain.
