Track Name: If There Could Ever Be Anything as Mean as a Man
if there could ever be anything as mean as a man

well i woke up with the scream of steam 
the rattle the clack the iron machine
if there could ever be anything as mean as a man
it is rolling down the tracks

we measured the weeks with a yard of rope
a slip of winter a flake of soap
i live a mile from here it might as well be a month
i walk these days on my knees

and we looked for signs in the old tea leaves
the english breakfast the darjeeling
i was born to be stubborn that’s what i heard
well i don’t believe a word

and across the border to who knows where
they take me hunting but i don’t care
the game is only pain without you i play i cheat i lose
if there could ever be anything as mean as a man

please hold the door i’m as slow as snow
john finn’s cottage is riddled with ghosts
and save a little space at the fireplace dad
and share a bottle with me

coal in the cellar and a house of leaves
and i dreamed you sleeping next to me
one of these days we’ll wake with a smile
and laugh at what we did

and across the border to who knows where
they take me hunting but i don’t care
the game is only pain without you i play i cheat i lose
if there could ever be anything as mean as a man

but the line runs clear to your town dear
still singing sharp and clear
and a fight can never ever really be won
by tooth or claw or tommy gun

and across the border to who knows where
they take me hunting but i don’t care
the game is only pain without you i play i cheat i lose
if there could ever be anything as mean as a man
