Bastille Four Walls (The Ballad Of Perry Smith) Lyrics

These four walls to keep you

One floor to sleep upon and only

These four walls to keep you

These four walls contain you

Supposed to save you from yourself and

These four walls in Holcomb

To keep you from the sun

And now we’re faced with two wrongs

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

I don’t know, oh, I don’t know

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

I don’t know, oh, I don’t know

We could be born to anything and now, and now

What you have done is terrible

And now you, and now you

Now you carry it with you

You carry it with you

You carry it with you

These four walls will keep you

Until you face the rope

You’ve only these four walls before they,

in cold blood, hang you up

And now we’re faced with two wrongs

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

I don’t know, oh, I don’t know

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

Now we’re faced with two wrongs

I don’t know, oh, I don’t know

We could be born to anything and now, and now

What you have done is terrible

And now you, and now you

Now you carry it with you

You carry it with you

You carry it with you

(Now you carry it with you

Carry it with you

Carry it with you)

There’s no view from here,

no view from here, no view from here

All you see’s the sky

Clouds passing by, clouds passing by

We could be born to anything and now, and now

What you have done is terrible

And now, and now

Now you carry it with you

You carry it with you

You carry it with you

Now you carry it with you

You carry it with you

You carry it with you

Now you carry it with you

You carry it with you

You carry it with you
