lyrics

Don’t kill the messenger
With the gobsmacked parable
Standing in for the creditor,
I’ve got a debt to pay

In a blinding storm I came
Tongue-tied for an evil gain
Spouting lies for a selfish way
I’ve got a debt to pay

I didn’t mean to hurt you, I didn’t mean to force your hand
I didn’t mean to cost you, I didn’t mean to make demands
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know

On the street where you let me be
Crying melancholy melodies
While I’m nursing the wounds I keep
I’ve got a debt to pay

Crucify on the balcony
For the sinner you’ve made of me
I’m not sure what the cost will be
But, got a debt to pay

I didn’t mean to hurt you, I didn’t mean to force your hand
I didn’t mean to cost you, I didn’t mean to make demands
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know
