I am born to hang

Lyrics

I am born to hang Well it's all healthy news In a nutshell this means That I never have to live like you

I am born to hang But not to have kids And to never be wed, no To someone who I don't even love

Hang the noose It'll eventually come loose

When you're born to hang Time is so strange And love doesn't come, no Or if it comes then it comes too late

And the song that we sing It rings in our heads It's flowing with dread Because it's all that we know

Hang the noose Let it not be loose

When you're born to hang Time is so strange And love doesn't come Or when it comes it comes too late

And the song that we sing It sings in our heads And it's flowing with dread Because it's all that we know

And the world Is flowing in our head

Live History
