Cannibal Cannibal

This song is by Silkworm and appears on the album Firewater (1996).

Hat a sight,
It's funny, I recall
When I was dying just to see you
Coming down that rocky road
In a tenament
On borrowed time
Lost in the television late at night

It takes a lot of nerve to get up in the morning
You got a lot, you got a lot of nerve
Got it going up to Canada
See what your money buys you there
Put that shadow on the run

And all signs point to logic, but that may well be a bust
(Cannibal cannibal)
The guilt was overwhelming, but I hid it on the run
(Cannibal cannibal)

Well I had a good time
But something must have snapped
I'm at a total loss
It was just too long ago
When your face was a jewel
I used to drink it up
Every single chance that I ever got

It takes a lot of nerve to go to bed at night
You got a lot, you got a lot of nerve
Got to go down to California anyway
Shine a light on the better days
Put that shadow on the run

And all signs point to reason, but that's never any fun
(Cannibal cannibal)
The guilt was overwhelming, so I hid it on the run
(Cannibal cannibal)
And the headhunters won't tell you, if those cannibals are slow
(Cannibal cannibal)
Something less demanding, yeah, well, oh, you never know
(Cannibal cannibal)
