lyrics

There is a cat with one eye
Yes there is a cat with one eye
And it looks really ill
Like it wants to be killed
As it sits on a wall
Scared by a football
Wheezing, sneezing
Watch it trickle down
Down down down

And you have got a gun
I do believe that you have got a gun
And it feels real cold
But you won’t let go
As you wait in your room
Aware of the full moon
Breathing, seething
Some things bring you down
Down down down

So are you gonna shoot that one eyed cat
Or are you gonna stand there crying
Coz if you don’t shoot that one eyed cat
She’s only gonna end up dying in pain

There is a horse with a twisted knee
Yes there is a horse with a twisted knee
And it moves real slow
Like your fingers when they’re cold
As the lids of its eyes
Bat away the greenflies
Hovering, slobbering
Watch them settle down
Down down down

And you have got a gun
I do believe that you have got a gun
But can you wait a while
With your vacant smile
As you stare at the knee
Whistling a melody
Simmering, dithering
Some things bring you down
Down down down

So are you gonna shoot that crippled horse
Or are you stand there whistling
Coz if you don’t shoot that crippled horse
Maybe you should keep on whistling
Maybe you should keep on whistling
