lyrics

It’s slipping through my fingers like a castle made of sand
You can read it in the paper, you can get it on demand.
‘Round here it gets so hot, the concrete slips right off the streets
Monsters coming out of hiding, crawling underneath your sheets.

But you know I love the feel of your tomahawk caress

Got your finger on the button babe, you ain’t nothing like the rest.
But if you feel my touch grow cold, like the settling of doubts;
March over my borders babe, raze it all into the ground.

We can see it in your eyes like it’s written on your face
Your office is in ruins, your country’s been disgraced.
With ‘yes’ men all around you - they’re all complicit in your game
But their children’s children’s children will still be cursing out your name.

You know I love the feel of your tomahawk caress

Got your finger on the button babe, you ain’t nothing like the rest.
But if you feel my touch grow cold, like the settling of doubts;
March over my borders babe, raze it all into the ground.

Some ten years later, someone’s surveying the scene
People have rebuilt, and wounds have all been cleaned
There are houses built near the craters, in the remnants of our love.
But if you want to keep your conscience clean - you’re gonna have to cover it up.
You’re gonna have to cover it up.
You’re gonna have to cover it up.
You’re gonna have to cover it up.

You know I love the feel of your tomahawk caress
Got your finger on the button babe, you ain’t nothing like the rest.
But if you feel my touch grow cold, like the settling of doubts;
March over my borders babe, raze it all into the ground.
