lyrics

well, the rounds have all been poured
and there’s moonshine on the floor
and the gypsies are out burning down the town
the rats can have our bread
‘cause tomorrow we’ll be dead
and the scarecrow
he can have your wedding gown

lay down, the hangman’s back in town
the heart is underneath the floor
stay down, can’t you hear the sound
the wolves are howling at our door

we’ll raise our broken bottles
we’ll wet our wicked whistles and sing...
we sin ‘cause it’s our choice
and with one united voice we sing...

well, the crows are on the wall
and you can hear those axes fall
and they’re tuning up their fiddles for tonight
we sing because we must
and we’ll dance until we’re dust
we’ll rage against the dying of the light

lay down, Old Scratch has come around
there’s no use fighting any more
stay down, the fields have all gone brown
the sky’s gone dark forever more

well our hearts are all tattooed
and we’ll shout it from the roof and we sing...
the rooster’s come to roost and
all hell will soon break loose and we sing...
like the winding of the sheet
the wolves, they prowl the streets and we sing...
we sin ‘cause it’s our choice
and with one united voice, we sing...
