No Life Jacket

One man makes a pact with the devil

And we’re all sent to hell

Six million X’s mark the spot

Where our hero fell

You spoke for me

But you were throwing your voice

You made promises to fill the void

And build the hope and trust that you destroyed


With the tide

Down river

To the right

You’re leaving

Us behind

No reason

No life jacket

One man makes a friend with benefits

And we all lose ours

Six million faithful lovers

Are left with broken hearts

You spoke for me

But you were playing a role

You broke your own code and took your post

As for the largest sum your soul was sold
