Death & Taxes – Green River lyrics

Middle of the night
Got your head in your hands
Middle of the road
Moonlight and beer cans
Can see it like a movie in my mind
And you make the same mistake every time
Did you see in his eyes when he offered you that ride?
Did you it wrong down inside?
Did you close your eyes and shut out the pain?
When he took you down that river

I want you to stay, stay away
Don't go down that green river today
Stay away
Don't go down that green river

Midnight, shadows and red eyes
Blood turns black in the moonlight
Still see your face it's burned in my mind
You're twenty-one forever

I want you to stay, stay away
Don't go down that green river today
Stay away
Don't go down that green river

When you feel those arms around you
They won't be mine
With the darkness all around you
They won't be mine

Well he took you, raper you and left you
There for all to see
Stripped of all your dignity
Middle of the night
Got my head in my hands
I'd wish you'd stay

I wish you'd stay, stay away
Don't go down that green river today
Stay away
Don't go down that green river
Stay away
Don't go down that green river today
Stay away
Don't go down that green river
