don’t need a marksman don’t need a gun
don’t need don’t need anyone
don’t need a pen don’t need a tongue
i’ll shoot you all i’ll write everyone
don’t need no poison don’t need no wine
don’t need a victim you’ve done just fine
i’m a one way street no illusion of empathy
a talk show host on daytime tv

reality, it never caught up with me
humanity, was never my aim to please

cuz i’m a western wizard dream catcher philosophy
i cast mighty spells with no authenticity

frugality, wine and dine me
or forcibly ill take what’s owed me

cuz im a beach house stairway i’m the rising tide
i’m a deep space skylight devoid of sky
i’m the trickle-down theory with the marxist eye
i stole your girl, but I’m real nice guy

oh the humanity it never caught up with me
oh and vanity, was much too hard to please

i need some poison or just some wine
i need a victim you’ll do just fine
i need the left hand to tell the right
applause for the victims and boo for the spite that i’ve caused
for the spite that i’ve caused


from Hod And the Helpers, released August 11, 2017

The band features the talents of AJ Marquez, Dan Potthast, Greg Braithwaite, and Jeff Stultz. ... more
