My Crimes

Written by: Jim David

How did I ever know 
She'd feel that way
About a bullet streaking across the sky 
Of green and black confounded, 
Are you?...who is this?...

And when we'd go there
She'd take me where
I'd fall and lie for her 
Crawl and die for her
With a gentle shove


    You can't gun the whole world down
    And hand out justice through your eyes
    You can't take 'em where you've been
    Or make 'em pay for your crimes

A simultaneous argument in my head
About what she meant and means to me
I feel a sense of inner dread
Why do I hang myself 
right before I'm free?

   I remember how the crows came
   And throwing bread at his feet
   I remember the Man in Black
   Always a step ahead of me
   I lift the jawbone in my hand
   Through the Oracle I will see
       What I've chased.... all this time

                     And one day, I'll be, standin' on that hill
                     On that day, a horn blast, will burn the still
                     We'll be there, together, to win the day
                     But I'll be, the only one, who ever rides away...

                                         I lost everyone who ever stood at my side....
        
                               And still they stay....

    You can't run the whole world down
    And hand out justice through your cries
    You can't take 'em where you've sinned
    Or make 'em pay for your crimes
