Lyrics

Dead Man’s Eye

Heavens raging,
River’s rising,
Fear’s on the street
Nowhere to go,
No boat to row,
Black waters meet
Moon on the water,
Shimmering glitter,
Death’s darkest Angel
Crescent city slips by,
Old Man won’t die,
Souls with the devil

Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by

Beware the signs,
The church bell chimes,
Fish branded limo,
Washington man washes his hands
No time for sorrow
Bourbon rings loud,
Beads in the crowd,
Tourists served blues
Voodoo town drowns,
Corpses aground
Nothing left to lose

Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by

Instrumental

Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people had to die
Dead man’s eye, wonders why, all the people just go by
