lyrics

now young lad
start sharpening your silver blade
and readying the wagon
father has agreed to let you ride with him
beyond those cliffs tonight, to slay the dragon

spill some blood, she’s yours for the killing
when she falls, i know she will
wipe the blood from your cheeks
and the tears from your eyes
and the look of surprise
go back inside and nevermind

‘cause with the dragon slain, we grow again
and the world gets drunk on tequila and gin
like we were raised to

‘cause with the damage done
we cling to one another, and to
the fairy tales we’ve spun
like we were raised to

go back inside and never mind
go back inside and never mind

dragons’ eyes are only fierce when they’re alive
and threatening survival
father says that when they’re dead
those eyes of hers can fetch a handsome price
on your arrival

lay them down, they’re yours for the claiming
don’t you frown, son, you’ve done well
she was a beast, you were a knight
at least it was your right
go back to bed, sleep through the fright

‘cause with the dragon slain, we grow again
and the world gets drunk on tequila and gin
like we were raised to

‘cause with the damage done
we cling to one another, and to
the fairy tales we’ve spun
like we were raised to

go back inside and never mind
go back inside and never mind
go back to bed, sleep through the night
