give back to the giver

Another day is going down / and I’m a long way from the jail / but I hear voices all around / they must have bloodhounds on my trail / I always swore to get away / and make my stand beside the river / better be careful what you say / it’s time to give back to the giver / I watched a movie long ago / about a hero almost captured / and as the blood began to flow / the sun came down just like a rapture / but life is not a story book / and no one’s clapping when you shiver / you just might get a final look / before it’s time to give back to the giver / I never liked the kind of man / who do the talk but don’t deliver / and as the blood soaks into sand / it’s time to give back to the giver.
