Redmen and Their Wives Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Fall out of bed-they're issuing lives
For redmen and their wives
Offering hands and twiddling thumbs
For dreams that never come
Verse 2
Often said "You better not look away
You'll lose the day"
The way I see it, it's already lost
"So then be it" they say
Verse 3
They're sharpening knives
And primitive lives for redmen and their wives
Breadwinner and klutz
And losing it all before the one eyes shuts
Verse 4
Well I see it as paying the price
Nobody feels it these days
Well I'd like to go and kiss them away
Well I'd like to know another way
Verse 5
Did you notice that they're taking back lives
From redmen just to
Give them time to find the light
In all the things that bind with fright
Verse 6
A killer's waking up this time
To rob us clean and leave us blind
They'll never see the light
They'll never find the time
