about

About meeting a young fella & an ol'fella at the pub. Total opposite's.

lyrics

He came to town on the wind they say,
A young man trying to find his way,
He had a head full of dreams
almost bursting at the seams
He had no plans to wed
scent of money on his nose instead
he bled for some sanity

Switch the shovel for the spade
Queen of diamonds digs his grave
He climbs atop to greet the ground
The Ace holds is the Jesters crown
He bled for some sanity

Businessmen in business coats
Filled the train ways & the boats
As they spoke on notes they wrote
He discovered the money joke
He discovered life is worth living
Without this greed he’s been feeding on
He bled for some sanity

I met this man the other day
A burdened soul with hair of grey
Told tales of truth
Told tales of lies
To naïve ears they were all lullabies
Stone cold the look in his eyes
He raised his glass & signed goodbye
No words were needed I could see with my own eyes
How he bled for some sanity.
