Sons Find Devils

Drink! Drink!Drink to our fathers
For they are real men and we are just boys
Boys! Boys! In games playing dangerous
And blood of baby must be spilt
To make up for our daddy’s guilt
It’s all I ever wished for
And all I ever wanted
All I ever wished for
All I ever wanted
So sons find devils when dreams lie dead
There’s little in giving
There’s little in taking
Come please take me away
Come please lead me astray
Oh, now here we go, oh here we go again
Lock me up mother
Send me to bed
I need to sleep
I need to dream.
Love! Love! We all love to be loved
So give me a flower a red, red rose
And together we can love and laugh and cry
Cry! Cry! We all can die but nobody really wants to
So give me a drink and dry, dry my eyes
It’s all I ever wished for
And all I ever wanted
All I ever wished for
All I ever wanted
So sons find devils when dreams lie dead
There’s little in giving
There’s little in drinking
Would you kindly show me the way to hell
Only God knows, only he knows
Who knows? God knows!
Lock me up mother
Send me to bed
I need to sleep
I need to dream
I need to dream and dance and laugh and sin and lie
For tomorrow I may die
Tomorrow has come! Where’s tonight?
Gimme a cigarette, hey you!
Have you got a light?
I need to sleep
I need to dream…
