lyrics

my boy lost his way
ever since a tiny tot of two
he had no sense of play
another night, an empty bed
just pull the wool over my eyes
my little killer hauled away
i guess that he was old enough
my son takes the stage
standing with his hands behind his back
looking half his age
another night, empty bed
just pull the wool over my eyes
my little killer hauled away
i guess that he was old enough to die
and old friends sit with me
and call out all the callous commentators talking on tv
and i hum soft and slow
the song you used to sing
we used to sing
and wait for them to go
and all rise and raise your hands again
and say the wind is gonna change some day
(but no one’s saying when)
and all’s fair, but nothing’s fair at all
so here i sit amongst constituents and wait for them to call
and now in the games
i watch the only man i’ve ever loved bring his family fame
another night, an empty bed
a closet full of coats to cry
my little killer hauled away
i guess that he was old enough to die
(oh god i dreamt the other day they had come)
i guess that he was old enough to die
it doesn’t matter cause he gave ‘em a run
i guess that he was old enough to die
