Heroes And Villains

Heroes and Villains
by: T-Ride (1992)


Won't need no mercy on my soul
When the lawman's got me cold
'Cause breaking the rules that they told
Was something I had to do
Play their game
But you start to win and the rules change
So my ship come rollin' in, it's gonna roll right over you
(And your law too)

The tightrope we walk leads straight to the gallows
And when the hangman calls your name

Heroes and villains hang the same

Early in the morning swinging in the breeze
There's a mist shrouded figure hangin' in the sycamore tree
Hero or villain don't matter much to me
They all end up the same, no one gets off scot-free

The tightrope we walk leads straight to the gallows
And when the hangman calls your name

Heroes and villains hang the same
Sinner or sainthood's your game

Whether you're a demon or divine
When the hangman says it's time
You won't see me sing the blues
'Cause I said fuck all your rules

Heroes and villains hang the same

It's just the writing on the tombstone change
There ain't a peasant or a king
Escapes that Dodge city rope swing

When the hangman calls your name
Heroes and villains hang the same

Maybe I'll concede to do anything you want me to
Maybe I'll bleed for you but you gotta catch me
You know I'll cry for you
Maybe I'll fry for you
Someday I'll die for you
But you gotta catch me
(Better hit me with your first shot)

Won't need no mercy on my soul
When the lawman catches me cold
Before I swing from that gallows pole
Catch me if you can
My time ain't due
