Right Away Great Captain – Oh No, I Tried lyrics

You said that I'm afraid to die
With a pitchfork ready and a man who sits up high
And I can hear the fire
I'm a dead dog sinner and a man too scared to try
And you're too close to call
I would sell my money for the chance to hear you talk

And oh no, I tried
I tried

What if you could see my skin?
Would you burn me moving?
Would you make a match out my head?
What if you could touch my hand?
Feel the deep sweat sweating from a guilty, guilty man
What if you could see my heart?
Would you say oh brother, that's the reason we still fall
And the reason that we still don't start?

And oh no, I tried
I tried

And oh no, I tried
I tried
