about

Finally, here's our magnum opus, our spaghetti western romance epic – "Lily of The West."

lyrics

Hard wood on a carpenter's floor
Her skin glimmers ice and her lips are cold

Where's your jacket and where's your guile?
Rode away on tigers, came a-back with the tide

Went with the seeds to see tulips grow
Returned in August with an arrow and a bow

Worked in the quarry for three dark years
Waiting for the honey to come sipping through my tears
If it hadn't been for honesty, I wouldn't have been bound
But I let my promises rest with my heart in the ground

Soak the sun with a soda on copper green roofs
Hear your laughter in the wind with the clatter of hooves

I had my teeth pulled out on the first day of snow
Tie my ribbon in your hair while my golden grin glows

Went with the seeds to see tulips grow
Returned in August with an arrow and a bow
Rip my shirt to bare my chest
Let the arrows pierce my breast and
Have her touch hot iron stamp my flesh
I'd gladly go then,
Stung by the thorn of the
Lily of the West

She asked she begged
She swore she had changed, but I
But I let my promises rest with my heart in the ground
