lyrics

RIFLES AND ROSARY BEADS
Joe Costello / Mary Gauthier

Rifles and Rosary Beads
We hold on to what we need
Vicodin morphine dreams
Rifles and Rosary Beads

Howling sunset bombs
In a stranger’s memory
Yellow smoke orange haze
It’s all coming back to me

Rifles and Rosary Beads
We hold on to what we need
Vicodin morphine dreams
Rifles and Rosary Beads

White knuckles wrapped around
Blackness that has no sound
Bombed out schools and homes
Kids crying in streets alone

Rifles and Rosary Beads
We hold on to what we need
Vicodin morphine dreams
Rifles and Rosary Beads

The mirror frightens me
I walk past try not to see
The stranger with blood on his hands
Brother I’m not that man

Rifles and Rosary Beads
We hold on to what we need
Vicodin morphine dreams
Rifles and Rosary Beads
