~Curse of Days~

~two of my younger brothers paroled from prison to a drug rehabilitation facility~PEER 1~me & the boys packed up our gear & went to play for the inmates~
~this is a song we wrote specifically for that gig~

~Curse of Days~
(live cut)

~life don’t teach, amount to much~
~children, it’s a slice of bread~
~it don’t hurt when the fist comes down~
~drop you to your knees, your head~
~something breaking deep inside~
~children, take your breath away~
~fear is borne, ain’t no good to cry~
~born into a curse of days~

~growing up, a battleground~
~children, it’s a slice of hell~
~detention, take your punishment~
~no one gets inside your shell~
~walls grow thick & deep & wide~
~children, hide your love away~
~bite the sky, any helping hand~
~go messin’ with your curse of days~

~tattooed tear, a pound of flesh~
~children, it’s a man, a cage~
~ain’t nothin’ like that closin’ door~
~make temper, set the lines of rage~
~angel call it, a whistle down~
~children, he got dues to pay~
~sun don’t shine on the prison man~
~living out his curse of days~

~line moves slow, a lady cries~
~children, it’s a loaded gun~
~she can’t stop~
~yeah, she kiss his face~
~the dead eyes of her fallen son~
~ya move along~
~we plant ‘em deep~
~children, we got hands of clay~
~beginning & the in between~
~the end, we got our curse of days~

~life don’t teach, amount to much~
~children, it’s a slice of bread~
~it don’t hurt when the fist comes down~
~drop you to your knees, your head~
~some thing breaking deep inside~
~children, take your breath away~
~fear is borne, ain’t no good to cry~
~born into a curse of days~
