lyrics

One Hand in Debt

Are you gonna get what you need
Wrapped up in a bow just like you dreamed?
Are they here to lay the table
Or are they here to feed?

Sing it to the sky if you dare
Did you think the clouds would care
About your little box
About your little bow
About your little dream?

If you’ve got one hand in debt
And the other in vain
But you can’t turn back yet
This could be the only way

But they’re gonna make you pay

Here’s a little match for the dark
Here’s a pretty mask for your part
Hope you come out right
Hope you come out strong
Hope you come out clean

If you’ve got one hand in debt
And the other in vain
But you can’t turn back yet
This could be the only way

But they’re gonna make you pay

Watch your back, little darlin’
Look how the stars are falling
What will you do if your debts are all called in?
