Dead Men Don’t Talk

from by Cultural Amnesia

lyrics

You can crawl in the depths
you can crawl in your bloated
you can scream your weak
derisions, convictions, contradictions
because we all know dead men don’t talk
you’re flogging a dead horse my friend
a dead horse

You’d better hope your slick will mask
your dimming streets of vision
and you’d better hope that age will blur
your pretentious moralisms
they’re going to be your epitaph my friend
your epitaph
and we all know dead men don’t talk
you’re flogging a dead horse my friend
a dead horse

Don’t you remember when you
used to beat our guts out
with the promise of a brave new world

We’re going to shake your dry and shrivelled mind
like a madman shakes a dead geranium
because remember
dead men don’t talk my friend
dead men don’t talk
