lyrics

And old is that abandoned dusty path,
which leads James to ancient rites.
And chilly is the fog beneath his feet, just like walking on clouds.
And dark every step while the evening’s wrapping in,
daylight marks, they just fade to black.
And heavy is the weight on James’s shoulders,
although he’s a naked man, carrying only himself on his
bony knees and a blister from the past.
James simply had enough of the brightness of his town,
and it’s go-go-bordello-ladies, which he hunts down every night.
Which he promised 1000 reasons, to be bound for 100 years.
But then burned their hearts to ashes,
when the liquor disappeared.
Out of his veins, out of his mind, the other day.
James sold everything he owned, for a nickel and a dime,
to a presumed fellowship, in the harbor late café.
And they shrieked while collecting bargains,
they didn’t had a clue,
James wasn’t entirely true, he was abandoning them all.
He was abandoning them all, for just one reason,
a reason no one knew.
That goddam’ blister from the past.
That goddam’ blister from the past.
And James he left,
he strode away,
rose with sun, the very next day.
Followed the path, that abandoned road,
which drove a little white girl earlier,
into the mountains without hope.
And no one saw, good old James back,
the legend told, he never grew old.
Cause once he found, nearby a cave,
that little mess he created, many years ago,
she sliced a dagger into his journey.
