the old north tower

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead

Goes wounded man hand in hand to take his place to die.

The apple in the orchard piques as the sun hangs overhead

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead.

 

Go Billy, Jack, and Juice, my friends, go to the town instead

Of wreaking havoc on that tower if you should pass by.

Just turn and walk – don’t even talk – listen to your head

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead.

 

Don’t look up at the clouds, but watch the ground you tread.

For fearsome creatures leer on high with a hungry eye,

And if you dare cross them, with them shall you wed

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead.

 

Don’t listen to adrenaline, sweat, and nonsensical ramblings said.

For if you do, you’ll kick, you’ll screw your eyes in to a cry,

And before it’s over perish with hell-hound fully fed

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead.

 

Now, go down my sweet and see where foolish boys were led.

Long gone from here, they can no longer fear. So say goodbye,

Because young cursed old and did untold. They surely now are dead

Down by the old north tower with the broken clock ahead.
