lyrics

'Beware of the quiet one', my ma used to say
The one who stays watching, 'til time comes to pay
Push it and push it, push it some more
Soon you'll find out, what they have in store
Watch out for the quiet one, ma used to say

Eye for an eye
The whole world goes blind
Drop it and just walk away
Put down the gun
What's done here is done
Drop it and just walk away

When push came to shove, one cold winter's day
She called his bluff, the hunter now prey
Push it and push it and push it some more
Straight through the chest bone and into the floor
'Watch out for the quiet one', my ma used to say

An eye for an eye
The whole world goes blind
Drop it, just walk away
Nowhere to run, what's done here is done
Vengeance, a debt you can't pay

'Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees'
Who was it who said that and did they get free?
I'll keep it in mind when the jacks come for me
Tell my babies I love them, promise for me
Promise for me

Eye for an eye
The whole world goes blind
Drop it and just walk away
Nowhere to run
What's done here is done
Leave it, just turn away
Turn away

'Beware of the quiet one', our ma used to say
The one who be waiting for their turn to play
