Bullets For The New-Born King - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Elvis Costello

No one looks in this place for motive or any hope

 

But for the dead shot of an amber glass

The blue light of a votive

 

Rain obscured the window

 

As the pain was dulled by the grains

 

Absolved by spoons in flames

 

In fear in time dissolving

 

It's not for the faint of pulse

 

Or anybody false

 

Those amateurs who simply shed their skins

 

So where are those traitors now we once called patriots

 

Just like those saints who seem to revel in their sins

 

O my eyes were filled with tears that were stinging

 

After our assassin's work was done

 

But bells in hands are only there for the wringing

 

And we were bringing bullets for the new born king

 

Trumpet sounds lamenting

 

Trampling down the blooms of the deceased

 

The double agent girl and the fallen priest were heading for the border

 

Somewhere in the high command there stayed the palest hand

 

Who saw the order countermand

 

Erased the tape recorder and then they hung him from a window cord

 

Swallow down that voodoo vial and stay your breath a while

 

Before we spill this tale that we had spun

 

And now I shall now confide all that I have denied

 

Oh I'm so sorry for the things I've done

 

O my eyes were filled with tears that were stinging

 

After our assassin's work was done

 

But bells in hands bells were only there for the ringing

 

And we were bringing bullets for the new born king
