lyrics

Taste for the Blood

Davey was about thirteen first time he killed himself a living thing
He crossed paths with a black bear in the woods
Davey was pretty scared but his aim was good
As he heard the creature cry it fell with a thud
Rain began to fall and he watched the dirt turn to mud

And he got a taste for the blood

Davey always heard his brothers tell
Bout the bully down the street who gave ‘em hell
They said he was a tall as a full grown evergreen
But Davey wasn’t scared of no Christmas tree
Momma always warned about stick and stones and words
And this bully hollered words and he swung a sharpened stick
But Davey brought some rocks and a striped sling shot sock
He slung it like a stone but it landed like a brick

And he got a taste for the blood

If there’s a trigger let him pull it
Load the chamber with six silver bullets
Cause he’s got a taste for the blood
He’s got a taste for the blood
He’s got a taste for the blood

Davey saw the girl up on the roof, looking soft and slender in her youth
She looked just like an angel, the kind that don’t need wings
No blemish on her body except the ring
Momma always warmed about girls that you might meet
Especially those girls who belong to other men
But her man was in the war, so Davey he made sure
That there upon the front lines he’d meet his end

And he got a taste for the blood

If there’s a trigger let him pull it
Load the chamber with six silver bullets
If there’s a sword let him swing it
If there’s a naked neck, let him ring it.
Cause he’s got a taste for the blood
He’s got a taste for the blood
He’s got a taste for the blood
