Three Legged Fox

Posted by bartpop Category: Lyrics

I am a three legged fox but I wasn’t always built this way
I was caught in a trap when darkness fell and I found another way

Every man’s a hunter with a hunger to be loved
but in your heart it’s always winter and the snow is piling up
you can lock me from the chicken house, put poison in my blood
but a three legged fox is wiley and I’m never giving up

So I am a three legged fox but it didn’t have to be this way
trapped in the night when your eyes turned red and I found another way

You come for me with torches, you hunt me till I’m rough
but fire burns all who get too close or keep it in their hearts
and it’s not the trap that will take me down into an early grave
while you spend each night in darkness for a debt you won’t forgive

So I am a three legged fox but I haven’t always been this way
I was caught in your trap when darkness fell and I found another way
That moon will rise tomorrow, you’ll curse my name for blood
I’ll be roaming the next valley, the same sky and stars above

and it’s not the trap that will take me down into an early grave
while you spend each night in darkness for a debt you won’t forgive
