​Blood On Your Barbed Wire Thorns

This song is by Magnum and appears on the album Into The Valley Of The Moon King (2009).

You tell me that you think it's over
Something's wrong, it never fails
Call it just a premonition
Hammer in those rusty nails

Now you say your life's so empty
All dressed up and nowhere to go
You forgot that being friendly
It's for real and not just for show
Oh, no

Blood on your barbed wire thorns
Yeah, yeah, yeah
The dogs were howling on the day you were born
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't talk and say you lied
So how do you know?
The mountains crumble and the river has died
Okay, what a show

Now everybody needs attention
Don't you know it's been a while
Just how long have you been waiting
To get you out of your exile

Speak about your superstition
Crucified by poverty
You're to blame for your decision
Won't give you no guarantee
Oh, no

Blood on your barbed wire thorns
Yeah, yeah, yeah
The dogs were howling on the day you were born
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't talk and say you lied
So how do you know?
The mountains crumble and the river has died
Okay, what a show

Behind the door
That bears no name
Someone will call
Always in vain
Losing your way
Is completely absurd
Ring of the phone
Discreetly unheard

Blood on your barbed wire thorns
Yeah, yeah, yeah
The dogs were howling on the day you were born
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't talk and say you lied
So how do you know?
The mountains crumble and the river has died
Okay, what a show
