Tom Waits The Fall Of Troy Lyrics

The Fall Of Troy Songtext

It's the same with men as with horses and dogs

Nothing wants to die

Evelyn? James they killed in a game

with guns too big for their hands

just off St. Charles in No-Mans Land

and you'll have to find your own way home.

Boys, you'll have to find your own way home.



The oldest was Troy, an eighteen year-old boy

Shot dead in March during a robbery

his brother started out to hell and to ruin

Troy's killer was never caught they say.

Young nick he just went bad that day

Now he'll have to find his own way home.

Boys, he'll have to find his own way home.



Why cook dinner?

Why make my bed?

Why come home at all?

Out the door and through the woods

There is a world where nothing grows

It's hard to say grace and to sit in the place

Of someone missing at the table

Mom's hair sprayed? tight

And her face in her hands

Watching TV for answers to me

After all she's only human

And she's trying to find her own way home.

Boys, she's trying to find her own way home.



My legs ache

My heart is sore

The well is full of pennies.
