Driving The Nails

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album My Year In Review (1995).

This song is a cover of "Driving The Nails" by Vigilantes Of Love.
Turn down the light placate the drunk
Kill the telephone
I don't wanna sit this one out
And have you rape me later on
Now ladies and gentlemen I used to be a notorious killer
And then I became the world's greatest dancer
Always asking what the truth was
And never waiting for an answer

Now it's the clay inside this heart of stone
And the concrete in my head
I know there's a fine line
Between the living and the dead
And I used to go to slasher films
And leave feeling pretty free
It's really quite cathartic
To see yourself up on the screen and

I've been driving the nails
Firmly in your tree
You've been talking to your Father
On behalf of me
Nothing at these check points
I care to defend
So why do I raise the hammer up
And drive the nails again

Now in the graveyard of my secrets
There's a hope buried beneath
All this talk of peace and righteousness
Has left me weary beyond belief
And there's an unwanted mistress
In my bed late at night
She say "i know you're a criminal
You been on death row all your life"

Turn out the lights and reconnect the phones
Fill the drunk's glass to the brink
I'm ready for penetration honey
But it's not what you think
You gotta fill this stinking shell
Of false humanity
Fill it up with bullet holes
From your firing squad of mercy
