Prussian Blue Saturday- A Dollar for The Ferryman

This song was created for Game of Bands round 217 : "Emulate A Well Known Band Or Artist II"

Lyrics:

He rows,
He moans,
Souls call but he won’t hear.

The flow,
Is slow,
But still he has to steer.

They call,
They crawl,
Arms slash against the oar.

He stares,
He glares,
Their fates sealed for wanting more.

The poor march, across the land,
Torches waving, back and forth,
Begs, pleads, to let him cross,
Ferryman, holds his ground.

Holds a smirk, that stretches wide,
Briefcase shine, like a black sun.
Smirk slips, from his grasp,
Ferryman, holds his ground.

Instrumental (2:38-2:52)

Interlude (2:52-3:07)
Can’t bear to part,
With one gold coin.
No one owes debt,
To The Ferryman.

Verse 2 (3:07-3:40)
Hoard your wealth, have a laugh.
Watch as angels, burn your cash.
Suit and tie, won’t do much.
When you need, to catch a boat.


Chorus (3:40-4:22)
You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t try, and sneak on, past by, The Ferryman.
You can’t use, your charm to, swindle, The Ferryman.
You can’t pull, the wool on, the eyes of, The Ferryman.

You can’t try, settle, a bribe with, The Ferryman.
You can’t try, and swim by, you’ll die to, The Ferryman.
Your wallets, your checks, don’t work with, The Ferryman.
You should’ve, let go of, a dime for, The Ferryman.

You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
YOU CAN’T GIVE, AN IO, U TO, THE FERRYMAN!

You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t try, and sneak on, past by, The Ferryman.
You can’t use, your charm to, swindle, The Ferryman.
You can’t pull, the wool on, the eyes of, The Ferryman.

If you love, business crime, you won’t catch, the ferry then.
If you can’t, spare a dime, you won’t catch, the ferry then.
Your blue tie, white lies, won’t trick, The Ferryman.
Despite all, of your coins, you won’t pay, The Ferryman.

You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
YOU CAN’T GIVE, AN IO, U TO, THE FERRYMAN!
