DEVILS HAIRCUT Sign in or register

 
Something's wrong cos my mind is fading
And everywhere I look there's a dead end waiting
Temperature's dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leprous faces

Heads are hanging from the garbageman trees
Mouthwash jukebox gasoline
Pistols are pointing at a poor man's pockets
Smiling eyes whipping out of their sockets

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Love machines on the sympathy crutches
Discount orgies on the dropout buses
Hitching a ride with the bleeding noses
Come into town with the briefcase blues

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Something's wrong cos my mind is fading
Ghetto blasting
Disintegrating
Rock and roll
Know what I'm saying
And everywhere I look there's a devil in waiting

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Devil's haircut in my mind
Devil's haircut in my mind
Devil's haircut in my mind
