Last Supper


There are ways a man can live
That let him sleep in peace oblivious
There are ways a man can learn to fight
What will never die

I’ve got that rose in my crown
As I kiss the tear on the shoulder that tears my world down

Pour me a drink
Tonight I’m in love
Pour one for sorrow
And the angels above
Tomorrow it’s war boys
And they called out my name
That silvery river will swallow me
If I can ever learn to be brave

There are ways a man can hide
And turn from the lantern
That glows through the night in his eyes
There are ways a man can learn to fight
What will never die

I’ve got that rose in my crown
This empire will bury my bones like the sun going down

Pour me a drink
Tonight I’m in love
Pour one for sorrow
And the angels above
Tomorrow it’s war boys
And they called out my name
That silvery river will swallow me
If I can ever learn to be brave

When I can’t come down to take your hand
Go quiet and seek all the peace in your heart
That your conscience can stand
For under your thoughts I shall play
Like a shimmering ghost in a grave
Here at your side I shall stay
‘Till the first birds of morning arise
To wash me away

Pour me a drink
Tonight I’m in love
Pour one for sorrow
And the angels above
Tomorrow it’s war boys
And they called out my name
That silvery river will swallow me
If I can ever learn to be brave
