Hand Grenades (single)

by The Successful Failures




There’s a bad moon comin
I hear the drummers drummin’, down the road
Hitchhikers thumbin, politicians running in circles I know
A little Spanish but not enough to manage
Living out here on my own
Tell me what’s the matter, send up another batter
I’m holding on, Holding on

I seen the sun rising
Over the horizon, it goes so slow
Really what’s the hurry, I fill my days with worry, piles up like snow
I’m just a nervous singer, I bite my fingers
Right down to the bone
My grip tightens, my knuckles whiten
I’m holding on, holding on

Holding on to this hand grenade
Holding on to the plans we made
Holding on to this hand grenade
Holding on to the games we played
Holding on, holding on

The home team’s losin
So much confusion, who’s even keeping score
Back at the museum of human beings, there’s a lock on the door
All these renovations are just imitations
Of what we done before.
Fast Eddie and Black Betty
Are holding on, holding on
