Rufus Wainwright – Sword Of Damocles lyrics
Release
The sword of Damocles
Just release it
To the authorities

We have been given
The same fortune cookies
You and I have
All of our progenies

Raise kindness
Above all else
Avoid the books of
Hatred behind the shelves

I will caress your
Caress your curly hair
With affection
Many a good reason to cut off your head
Then and then

Release
The Sword of Damocles
Just release it
I’m begging
You on my knees

There is no reason
To hide it from the sun
I am a tyrant
Trust me, you are not the one and only
And trust me, you are not the one and only
And trust me, you are not the one and only
Lonely person

Release
The sword of Damocles
Release
The sword of Damocles
Just release it
Cut the thread
Why don’t you please
