the speed of a yellow bullet lyrics – head automatica

i drove a tank in on the left
i hid a rifle on the right
when she said “i see a tunnel
and at the end i see a light”
i see fire on the water
on the right bank and the left
and she smiles when she wears the iron curtain as a dress

i said come on
come on
you’re tellin me to see the truth even with my eyes sewn up
come on
you’re tellin me to tell the truth even with my mouth sewn shut

i see a preacher with a secret
and he dare not make a sound
i see the smoke and fire
and the market burning down
i see a tulip on the grave
of a lover who confessed
i’m a soldier and a poet
but i’m a dancer at best

i said come on
come on
you’re tellin me to see the truth even with my eyes sewn up
come on
you’re tellin me to tell the truth even with my mouth sewn shut
i said come on
you’re tellin me to see the truth even with my eyes sewn up
come on
you’re tellin me to tell the truth even with my mouth sewn shut

yes baby yes
i’m burnin houses baby
i’m burnin bridges baby
yes baby yes
i’m burnin houses baby
i’m burnin bridges baby

i drove a tank in on the left
i hid a rifle on the right
when she said “i see a tunnel
and at the end i see a light”
i see fire on the water
on the right bank and the left
and she smiles when she wears the iron curtain as a dress

i said come on
come on
you’re tellin me to see the truth even with my eyes sewn up
come on
you’re tellin me to tell the truth even with my mouth sewn shut
i said come on
you’re tellin me to see the truth even with my eyes sewn up
come on
you’re tellin me to tell the truth even with my mouth sewn shut
