The Meanest Man In The World

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album A Year in the Wilderness (2007).

The wide, wide open sky above the sage and the thorns.
The rocks and pines were humming an old familiar tune.
His hard, black boots came crunching up this gravel road.
He saw the house a mile away, the moon was just setting.
The night were darker then, lights in the living room,
He could recall that the TV was on but not if anyone was watching.

He never thought of himself as cruel
He never thought of himself at all
Kindness was always outside his grasp
He was the meanest man in the world
He was the meanest man in the world

The door wasn't really locked, the fireplace was burning.
The room exploded like a bomb but all in slow motion.
Icicles hung from the roof, he remembered someone weeping.
Though it was sticky on the rug, he just kept on walking.
He never closed a door. he never turned off a light.
He left things pretty much the way they were
After he did what he did that night.

He never thought of himself as cruel
He never thought of himself at all
Kindness was always outside his grasp
He was the meanest man in the world
He was the meanest man in the world
He was the meanest man in the world
