Only A Fool

Lyrics: Brent Mydland
Music: Brent Mydland

This was played once, on 23 April 1984. Thanks to Drew Berry for the lyrics.

Only a fool could tell his friends
Of a war that just won't end
Only a fool would go so far
As you you have gone, my man

How my friends spoke so good of you
Makes me burn inside
Think of all you did to him
I don't care how far or fast you ride

I'm gonna break you down
That's all I'm gonna do
You're gonna wish the ground
Was six feet over you

To think you're wise, only goes to show
How wrong someone can be
Hey, king of lies, you ain't no mask
For the hell I got in me

I'm gonna break you down
That's what I'm gonna do
You're gonna wish the ground
Was six feet over you
