A Thousand Days Lyrics

7. A Thousand Days
Has the truth of it slipped all away
what was his name what did he say?
When you looked at my face did you see
someone to blame - did you see me?
There, there in the light
hid in the dark standing in sight
I gunman alone, part of a group
all on my own...

Who plans for 1000 ways?
What ends with a scream?
Who rules for 1000 days?
What dies with a dream?

Here, here in the dark
shown by the glow lit by the spark
they, the men of the state
rejected by all to isolate.

What lasts for 1000 days?
Who lives for a dream?
What looks for 1000 ways?
Who dies with a scream?

Wasn’t he caught with a gun, wasn’t he?
Wasn’t he CIA or KGB?
Didn’t he marry a ‘Red’, didn’t he?
Didn’t he know she was still a commie?

Say when I misspoke-
“the fall of Saigon” or “I drank one Coke”?
Why am I to blame?
The mob and the state are one and the same.

And I lose control once more!
Knock Marina on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

And I lose control once more!
Knock Marina on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

Wasn’t I in the Marines -wasn’t I?
Wasn’t I born in the Land of the Free?

Say when you misspoke-
That I made that shot, or was that a joke?
Why do you all stare, and whisper and nod,
as if I’m not there?

And I lose control once more!
Knock this country on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

And I lose control once more!
Throw this country on the floor
And I lose control again!
This nation’s lies and gods defend!
So it ends...
Life pretends…
