Protection Racket [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

Searching for a reason
Trying to find the answer why
Brave hearts to believe in
Need to feel something real inside

So long in the desert
Dried up in the breeze
Barbed wire all around him
Armour-clad… he’s not sad inside

His mum put some
Strange things in his head
His dad was mad
but now he is dead (cobwebs)

Shipwrecked in a bottle
Broken sails on the sea
Big waves gonna drown him
Doesn’t care or despair at all

Puffed up in his courtyard
Shades shut out the sun
Blinds down in his windows
Blinkers on — has no song to cry

When young, got stung
Won’t do it again
Now old, controlled
Think 12 Angry Men (mayhem)

Listened to the circus
Thought it came from outside
Heard clowns in the shadows
Masquerade only made him smile

Earthmound is his future
Earthbound from the start
Stood still at the corner
Didn’t know where to go for love

Girl quest obsessed
Old wounds intertwined
He knew so few
Connections that rhymed (love-blind)

Fly high in the morning
Shooting stars just for fun
She’ll come in the evening
Touch your face, leave a trace of sky
