(11) This one’s not going to end well

This One’s Not Going To End Well   4:00

This one's not going to end well
But after he's gone, the traders will trade
Fliers will fly, seafarers will ride on the swell
Shading their eyes in the glare of the sun
Though this one's not going to end well
For anyone

This one's not going to end well
But after he's gone, the gypsy will smile
And the poets will dream
And their fortunes in crystal she'll tell
As she looks in the glass where the stories are spun
Though this one's not going to end well
For anyone

Chained to the oars below
Or bound to the wheel
Drums beating hard and slow
Under the heel

This one's not going to end well
Still after he's gone, they'll whip up old lies
To ride into power, and history comes back from hell
Give a tyrant his way with the club and the gun
This one's not going to end well
For anyone

This one's not going to end well
For anyone

I can't stop thinking about this title.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

This won't be a happy song.

Can be a blues song for all we know. Again, expectations are the enemy of excitement.

I'm not afraid of expectations. I have a positive attitude. There is a topic on the forum The new songs - A hypothesis and I am not the author :)

Mark's oeuvre is full of fuck-up songs. My favorite is «Old Pigweed».

Yes, when you put old pig weed in the gulas you know it is not going to end well
