lyrics

Guillotine

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, June 2005


The madman shouts his warning
The preacher starts his calling
The angels start their falling
As I wake to meet the mourning

Soon the rivers turn to blood
First a trickle then a flood
The ravens are descending
Picking eyes from happy endings

My friends all turn to strangers
And safety turns to danger
I can hear the sound of sirens
I can hear the women crying

As I walk a crooked line
Between giving up and lying
There is a shadow over me
Like a stain I cannot clean

Then darling you
Come cutting through
Like a guillotine
Like an angel sent to rescue me
Come rescue me

The sky is bloody crimson
And from every dimension
Everybody seems demented
And filled with ill intentions

As we hit the midnight hour
And the dogs begin to howl
There is panic in this town
The signs are all around

Then darling you
Come cutting through
Like a guillotine
Like an angel sent to rescue me
Come rescue me

Come rescue me
Come rescue me
