Liner Notes: 

based on a true story

Lyrics: 

Saints and swords a comin’
They gonna clean out your yard
Take the bad seeds growin’
Make you eat your words

Yer gonna hafta swallow
The pain you thrown around
Yer gonna hafta break yer own back
To make 'em hear a sound

Yer gonna hafta break your ol’ sack
To make ‘em hear a sound

And they’ll listen
And laugh, laugh out loud
And they’ll listen
When you try ta play yer last card

Yer gonna hafta swallow
The truth o what you done
Yer gonna hafta pay it all back
In double to each town

Saints and swords a comin’
They gonna strip your bed
See the sheets yer wearin’
Pull ‘em off your head

Yer gonna hafta swallow
The pain you thrown around
Yer gonna hafta break yer ol’ sack
To make e’m hear a sound

And they’ll listen
And laugh, laugh out loud
And they’ll listen
To the tripping of your cut-rate heart

And they’ll listen
And laugh, laugh out loud
And they’ll laugh, laugh out loud



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

title no problem, YOU'RE GONNA HAFTA

only because it is repeated through out the lyric
and is very relevant to it too
a good strong story told well here
painted a clear picture for me
hope his helps on the title
good write

nice images, and it really adds up to a wonderfully foreboding and moody lyric- great job!

I like this structure in how the same first lines are used in variations suggesting something in-between parallel verses, modified choruses, or multiple bridges. Also how the rhymes carry through across song sections.

There's some nice imagery here. The lyrics, combined with your tags makes me think of people gathered by a fire pit in a tiny home community and playing some songs.
