Bees Made Honey In the Lion’s Head

beesEvery girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man
You’re a wolf with a closet full of wool
& I have never been a victim,
but baby you’re so cool

You never see the nests until the leaves have blown
Till the birds have flown, till you’re eating crow
You never see the nests till the birds have flown

Samson went soft for a woman
Slept in the joy of his sins
Woke to cry, “Delilah, why’d you do me wrong?”
“It was the least I could do for my kin,
& if your god would forsake you so easy,
Don’t the proudest go down so hard…
What good is the strength of a thousand men
If you’ve got no heart, if you’ve got no heart?”

If I had my way, I would tear this building down

Now the bees made honey in the lion’s head
& the beasts have cleaned the bones
An eye for an eye for an eye for an eye
Can’t you hear Jerusalem moan? Can’t you hear Jerusalem moan?
