lyrics

A cool head and a cool heart
you need those things to start with
walking a fine line to stay
in charge of all the madness

there’s a price to pay and all will
meet the maker in the end
to ask for mercy maybe beg
you’ll get what’s coming for you

A spear in the thigh
an eye for an eye

Arthur he did row
into Manly Cove
just three men, their weapons in the boats
left on the shoreline

Banelon he tried to tell you
you were here on trial
it was you who would be soon to feel
a spearing in the thigh

You can’t deny
an eye for an eye

You didn’t know that you could dodge
a spear it just won’t err Sir
till your safely back at camp and with a doctor
at your side Sir

If they wanted to they could
have killed you right there in cold blood Sir
At least you understood that
it was justice on their mind Sir

A spear in the thigh
an eye for an eye
