Lick the dust

leaft in the lurch,by trusted ones
out in the sea,wating for tide to come
with noone around,to pour oil on toubled waters
at sixes and sevens, sowing his wild oats

As time drops off, he lies in hornets nest
day by dya being reduced to man of straw
dutch courage tell him, to kick against the pricks
in racks and ruins,ready to lick the dust
lick the dust(4)

cast down in life,cast down with life
depressed & unable to spike his guns
falls down on his knees to go west
falls down to lick the dust
lick the dust(4)
