TOM WAITS


Hell Broke Luce Lyrics

I had to get home but I left
I had to get home but I left
right - left
that big fuckin bomb made me deaf, deaf
a home beam mechanic with his kevlar on wrong
i guarantee you meet up with a suicide bomb
and hell broke luce
hell broke luce

dig fuckin ditches in the middle of the road
you'd pay a hundred dollars just for filling in the hole
listen to the general every goddamn word
how many ways can you polish up a turn?
and left - right
left - left - right
hell broke luce, hell broke luce
hell broke luce

...
how is the only ones responsible for making this mess
got their sorry asses stapled to a goddamn desk
and hell broke luce, hell broke luce
left - right - left

what didja do before the war i was a chef, I was a chef
what was yer name it was Jeff, Jeff
I lost a buddy in Iraq, raq
I come down from the meth so I slept, slept
I had to get home but I left, left

can't stick the wind for a joke
i benched right in with a goat(??)
glanced at her shins she said nope, hope
left - right - left

...hasn't any wool
get me another bodybag but the bodybag's full
my face was scars, scars
i miss my home i miss my porch, porch
left - right - left
can i go home and march, march?
my stance is a chin from the soap
had rancid dinner with the pope
and left - right - left
cali personne got his sons thrown off
sergio's developing a real bad cough
sergio's developing a real bad cough
and hell broke luce, hell broke luce
hell broke luce

boom went his heavy weight and boom went bowery(?)
what the hell was it that the president said?
give them all a beautiful parade instead
and left - right - left

but i was over here, i never got to vote!
I left my arm in my coat
my mum she died and never wrote
and set by the fire in her coat
just before he died he had a coke
now I'm home and I'm blind and I'm broke
what is next?
