about

bloody front porch shoot out
or
what happens when you interrupt my reading session

lyrics

o-o-o-o-o-o-o

"The axe severed his head
on the battlefield
Portuguese summer
Portuguese summer..."

out on the front porch with a cigarette
and a dirty Bordeaux
what can you show me
deep silt in the glass
of some dark thing to pass

I laid down the book and took a good look down the road
and I saw dust rising up, rolling my way
a truck, dog in the back
with a shot-gun on the rack
a truck, dog in the back
with a shot-gun on the rack

I called out,
"Daniel come quick, hurry hide the stash!"
he said we'd be fine
that they promised more time

o-o-o-o-o-o-o

The truck was idling low as two men stepped out
they said,
"Miss we need to speak to your man, seems he didn't follow the plan..."

Well the truck back-fires
and Dan's so tired,
he shoots
and he shoots
now the chest of one man is half on my hand
Bordeaux and blood and barking in the sun

The other man would be face-down
if he had one
he soaks the ground
Bordeaux and blood and barking in the sun
Oh Dan, what have you done
Oh Dan, what have you done

o-o-o-o-o-o-o

"The axe severed his head
on the battlefield
Portuguese summer
Portuguese summer..."
