Lyrics of Red Right Hand

Take a little walk to the edge of town go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom as it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires
In the humming wires hey man you know you're never coming back
Past the square
Past the bridge
Past the mills
Past the stacks
On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man in a dusty black coat with a red right hand
He'll wrap you in his arms
Tell you that you've been a good boy
He'll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy
He'll reach deep into the hole heal your shrinking soul
But there won't be a single thing that you can do
He's a god
He's a man
He's a ghost
He's a guru
They're whispering his name through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat is a red right hand
You don't have no money?
He'll get you some
You don't have no car?
He'll get you one
You don't have no self-respect you feel like an insect
Well don't you worry buddy 'cos here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio and the Bowery and the slum
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper in his red right hand
You'll see him in your nightmares
You'll see him in your dreams
He'll appear out of nowhere but he ain't what he seems
You'll see him in your head on the TV screen
Hey buddy I'm warning you to turn it off
He's a ghost
He's a god
He's a man
He's a guru
You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by his red right hand
