Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Bones of Contention

rate me

Well the fires are tended

Well the fires are tended

And my blood it just boils

And my blood it just boils

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

And the fruits of hard labor

And the fruits of hard labor

Have been drowned in snake oil

Have been drowned in snake oil

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

The dead are thin

The dead are thin

Their houses fat

Their houses fat

Once you steal you can't give back

Once you steal you can't give back

From the scaffold greed explodes

From the scaffold greed explodes

Down to nothing

Down to nothing

Down where nothing brings you down

Down where nothing brings you down

Well we've all been to heaven

Well we've all been to heaven

And we've all been to hell

And we've all been to hell

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

And the door-to-door salesmen there

And the door-to-door salesmen there

Have nothing left to sell

Have nothing left to sell

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

And the poison you choose

And the poison you choose

Is the source of my confusion

Is the source of my confusion

And I spend all my time

And I spend all my time

Trying to figure what you're using

Trying to figure what you're using

Well the bones of contention

Well the bones of contention

Are at the top of your stairs

Are at the top of your stairs

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

And they'll shake and they'll rattle

And they'll shake and they'll rattle

'til somebody cares

'til somebody cares

(hey there pass your hat)

(hey there pass your hat)

The dead are thin

The dead are thin

Their houses fat

Their houses fat

Once you steal you can't give back

Once you steal you can't give back

From the scaffold greed explodes

From the scaffold greed explodes

Down to nothing

Down to nothing

Down where nothing brings you down

Down where nothing brings you down

And the poison you choose

Is the source of my confusion

And the poison you choose

And I spend all my time

Is the source of my confusion

Trying to figure what you're using

And I spend all my time

Trying to figure what you're using

Please pass your hat x5

Won't you pass your hat

Please pass your hat x5

Won't you pass your hat
