JOHN (COUGAR) MELLENCAMP
"The Company Of Cowards"

I'm in the company of cowards
I'm in the company store
Bullet holes through the window
We can't keep this company up anymore

A bucket of beer, a bucket of fools
A bucket of dark and broken rules
There's a lot more to this than I ever thought
A bucket of trouble that's what we've bought

The man in the moon this afternoon
Told secrets on you
I believe to be true
I'm in the company of cowards
I'm in the company of me and you

I saw you with Mr. Struggle Must Go On
In a bar down in the Keys
He was old and slow and couldn't throw a punch
And you looked so musical last night in the breeze
You were showering him with your tender protection
With no regard for me
I was dining alone on the bread of sorrow
While you were making fat the old man and the sea

The man in the moon this afternoon
Told secrets on you I believe to be true
I'm in the company of cowards
I'm in the company of me and you

The Bible speaks of Heaven and Hell
And many frightening things
Politicians say "One more war
And the bells of freedom will start to ring
Those stories you told by the waggin' of your chin
Time's not so precious til it comes to an end
And silence is truth between me and you
With our demur well hidden, like two birds we flew

So cover your eyes old man in the moon
Unless you care to see what really is not true
You're in the company of cowards
It's hard telling what they will do
You're in the company of cowards
You're in the company of me and you
