Ivory Tusk
Music: chan kinchla

Lyrics: john popper



Ivory tusk, smash into thine own

To show thee fit to continue

I weep for them and i weep for me

We rally to charge to die

And laugh when it's through



Well rise and walk now you're a man

Don't try to play catch me if you can

Just do as you're told son you must abide

Have you gone crazy it never was a free ride

Just take yo medicine and help it go down

Do as you're told boy no need to frown

You know it happened to me and your granddad too

Not a goddamn any one can do



Well sir i don't know but i hear them say

If there's no free ride then ride away

And it could be me, and it could be strange

But keep hearing voices singing "comes a change"



Blood drop spill unto the parched earth

And nourish that which is hungry

Feast well avenging madness

Then call your buzzards down to clean the carcass



Well your life's not yours it's everyone's

So do the right thing and go for your guns

It's how the world was saved and how the west was won

So here he comes now you gotta stand or run

Just level your iron boy and sight him in

You ain't out to die boy

You're out to win

You know you hate him, you must know he hates you

Not a goddamn anyone can do



Well if my life is everyone's well good that's fine

But you've yet to prove that that makes his life mine

And it could be me and i could be strange

But i keep hearing voices singing "comes a change"



Like rain and thunder washing everything away

That's what i hear them say

You might just prefer to pray

It's the same thing anyway



Ivory tusk, smash into thine own

To show thee fit to continue

I weep for them and i weep for me

We rally to charge to die

And laugh when it's through



Well sir i don't know but i hear them say

If there is no free ride then ride away

And it could be me, and it could be strange

But keep hearing voices singing "comes a change"



Like rain and thunder washing everything away

That's what i hear them say

You might just prefer to pray

Like rain and thunder washing everything away

That's what i hear them say

You might just prefer to pray
