Abandon Words

This song is by Elvis Costello and appears on the 2002 reissue of the album Brutal Youth (1994).

Abandon words
And perish the thought
Take away the slanders of evil
You forbid more than you protect
You will lose the sense and the meaning
Somewhere between respect and correct
Abandon words
Abandon words

Short hours
Abandon words
Abandon hope
Abandon fear
Abandon love
Abandon tears
Abandon vengeance and remorse
Abandon and of course
Abandon thought
Abandon need
Abandon justice
How I plead

Abandon words
And perish the thought
Take away the slanders of evil
You forbid more than you protect
You will lose the sense and the meaning
Somewhere between respect and correct

Abandon vengeance and remorse
Abandon and of course

Abandon need
Abandon justice
How I plead
Abandon shame
Abandon lies
Abandon crime
Abandon need
Abandon virtue to begin with
Abandon grace
Abandon sin
Abandon faith and then belief

Abandon words
And perish the thought
Take away the language of evil
You forbid more than you protect
You will lose the sense and the meaning
Somewhere between respect and correct
Abandon words
