Thornstruck: Ol' Shovel

By Paul Adrain Hodgkin
Well hell
Ya smiled at me with roses
Soft pedals moist like dew
And my heart within your garden fell
Thornstruck and torn in two
Dead again with sorrow
I never learn a god damn thing
In this life where birds are gunshot
And the bees have lost their sting
Now a man he don't go crawlin
So I've heard and cannot do
But I'd sell my soul and gladly go
If the price it'd bring was you
For a kiss I'd fight the devil
This and more I'd do or die
But no one can say I've never lived
No not for all the times I've tried

So Darlin climb on up behind me
Take a ride and you will see
An alternate dimension
A fxxxin world beyond belief
Hear the revvin of the engines
Forgin men with their machines
The gas
The grease
And oil
We ain't been baptized till we bleed
Hell no the asphalt ain't forgivin
But the wind she knows our needs
So we throttle hard into each moment
For tomorrow's just a dream

I got one foot on this ol' shovel
And the other'n in the grave
While I'm wonderin about them ancient gods
Who the hell did they embrace
And I don't care about no pity
That shit ran down my mothers face
A bastard will remember
Back of the hand beats ya god damn straight

I've eaten crap and disgrace
Off their filthy dirty plate
And been locked inside forever
By the fxxxin human race
Now I'm back for the apocalypse
Don't need no R.S.V.P
I'm the rider on the pale horse bitch
And I could bring you misery

You smiled at me with roses
Soft pedals moist like dew
And my heart within your garden fell
Thornstruck and torn in two
Now sober it ain't easy
When heartache's found it's fool
If I can't get in
There's no gettin out
So empty's just a rule
Teeth locked around a bullet
Fightin back that fxxxin tear
Ya say ya care
I wish ya'd dare
As I put my bike in gear
Rubber tattoos asphalt
And the world screams windspeed by
But no one can say I've never lived
No not for all the times I've tried

So ya ran back home to your mother
I guess ya thought ya could escape
I got candy in my pocket girl
All I gotta do is wait
Ya know your head's all kinds of fxxxed up
And ya need some shit to get ya through
I got more shit than you can shake a stick at bitch
But ya take my shit ya take me too

It ain't that bad
Nothing's broken
Your still alive
Just your ego bruised
Long as there's a road for us to ride on
There's still a way for me and you
We'll join a pack out on the highway
Ride staggered in the wind
I know there ain't no happy ever after
But it's a way for us to mend

And in the end if your still behind me
When my brothers take these bones and tatted skin
To bury on some hillside
And holler can I get a hymn
We'll break these earthly bonds and burdens
Ride lightning bolts and chase the wind
Steal the pearls off the gates of heaven
Show the devil how we sin
And when we're settled in and ready
We'll take our place and change our ways
And ride beside almighty
On streets of gold and brighter days
