THE SINS OF ALCAREZ

SILVER SPADE

SHE LEFT HER LIPSTICK ON THE SHOTGUN BARRELL
SHE LEFT HER BRAINS ALL OVER THE THE WALL
HER LIFE IS LIFELESS EYES ROLLED BACK IN HER SKULL
AND MY SHOTGUN STILL HAS FIVE MORE

MOTHER AND FATHER CRY OVER HER BODY
ON THEIR KNEES YOU CAN HEAR THEM MOAN
I GRAB MY SHOTGUN RELEASE TWO MORE ROUNDS
NOW THEIR DAUGHTER WON’T BE ALONE

DIG MY GRAVE WITH A SILVER SPADE
UNDER THE OAK TREE BY THE OLD DRY WELL
RAIN COMES DOWN AS THE DIRT KICKED IN
NOW I’M SIX FEET CLOSER TO HELL

LATER THAT NIGHT TWO MEN KICK DOWN MY DOOR
I GRAB MY SHOTGUN TWO MEN HIT THE FLOOR
I'M A WANTED MAN HERE TO DIE I STAY
‘CAUSE MY SHOTGUN STILL HAS ONE MORE

DIG MY GRAVE WITH A SILVER SPADE
UNDER THE OAK TREE BY THE OLD DRY WELL
RAIN COMES DOWN AS THE DIRT KICKED IN
NOW I’M SIX FEET CLOSER TO HELL
