Outliers lyrics

 
 

Mariner's Poem

Lay my head where I can still see my home

Place my heart n' white roses in an arc of stone

Set me a blaze with your condemnation

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

 

May your thirst be quenched from thy chalice cup

Let me love you with all I've got till I'm all used up

What we shall reap, must first be sown

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

Kill th' messenger is an optional play

Diversion keeps truth from seeing' th' light of day

All fools get a chance to atone

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

My spirit awakens to the Mariner's Poem

Gator Stole My Biscuit

 

Gator stole my biscuit

He said I wouldn't miss it

Then he growled

I picked up a pumpkin

I smashed it against his noggin

Then I howled

Fool me once, shame on you, you, you

Fool me twice, no tellin' what I'll do, do, do

 

Gator stole my biscuit

He said I wouldn't miss it

Then he growled

I grabbed me a stick

I poked it in his ribs

Then I howled

Don't tarry, don't miss th' ferry

Move along, long, long

You got what you came for

My patience is gone, gone, gone

 

Gator stole my biscuit

He said I wouldn't miss it

Then he growled

I picked up my pistol

I aimed it at his temple

Then I howled

Fool me once, shame on you, you, you

Fool me twice, this gun goes boom, boom, boom

Don't tarry, don't miss th' ferry

Move along, long, long

You got what you came for

My patience is gone, gone, gone

 

Gator stole my biscuit 

He said I wouldn't miss it

Then he growled,

Then he growled,

Then he growled

Stubborn Pride

 

I should have called you th' next mornin'

I could have tried to correct that lie

I should have done somethin' to make it up to you

Yet somehow thought it just weren't worth my time

 

Now all I have to keep me company

Is just my stubborn pride

Is just my foolish pride

 

Yeah, I turn molehills into mountains

Yeah, I could've taken back what I've done

I figured like always you'd forgive me in time

But you left me without any warnin' signs

 

Now all I have to keep me company

Is just my stubborn pride

Is just my foolish pride

 

I should have called you th' next mornin'

I could have tried to correct that lie

I should have done somethin' to make it up to you

Yet somehow thought it just weren't worth my time

 

Now all I have to keep me company

Is just my stubborn pride

Is just my foolish pride

Let's Roll

 

Hey baby, what's th' plan

Ain't no one here gonna take us by th' hand

Hey baby, we've got to go

No time to wait

Don't you dare take that switch n' bait

Let's roll

 

Hey baby, we're about to start th' show

So why'd th' leader of our band just duck n' go

Hear that drummer, he's tappin' out th' beat

No time to wait for that leader

We'll take our music to the streets

Let's roll

 

Damn baby, what th' hay

Don't you dare give up

Come on, we'll rise above th' fray

It's up to you n' me

To carry forth th' mantle

Of our sweet liberties

Let's roll

Heroin

I was raised to mind my manners

To end my prayers with, Amen

Mamma told me th' good Lord Jesus

Loved all his lil' children

I learned I could always depend on him

To bring me comfort n' forgive my sins

But in time I turned away from him

Now all I evr' seek is th' cold, cold comfort

Of this heroin

Now all I evr' seek is

Th' cold, cold comfort

Of this heroin

 

Lord please give me a sense of promise

Just a small taste of your serenity

As I break free from my addiction n'

Try n' try to stay clean

Leave behind my troubled past

To become your child, your child again

I'm in need of a lil' comfort

Will you forgive me all my sins

 

I turn to you Lord Jesus

Seekin' refuge in your most merciful love,

Most merciful love, Amen

Most merciful love,

Most merciful love, Amen
