Japanese Breakfast Lyrics

Japanese Breakfast Rugged Country Lyrics

666 sixteen-year-old kids huddled around the grocery lot

“He punched out my teeth” so you said, so did the evidence

The blood and the dent on the car door from your head

And this is where I bring you

With every laurel I’ve hung from your neck

It will be the noose that hangs you

Yes it will be the noose that hangs you

Cause I was lonely here and it’s lonely still

In the rugged country where the weeds grow fierce

Quicker than the crop I keep running from

In this rugged country

I’m the rugged one

And this is where we lost you

Despite every effort to bring you back

And the hope’s the one that haunts you

And this home’s the rope that’s wrapped around your neck

And it will be the noose that hangs you

Yes it will be the noose to hang you

And it’s a heavy hand where I wear your death

As a wedding ring in the rugged country

I tend to your man in the home you had

Oh in this rugged country

I’m the rugged one
