Big Business - Grounds For Divorce lyrics

I heard he dabbled into
witchcraft, I heard occult
Oh, they're pretty much the same
I guess he was adopted, or raised by wolves
That's ridiculous to say

I heard he boiled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That's a lie

I heard he spoke in tongues, gone crazy
I heard he was a refugee
I heard he was a monster, a scary ghost
Oh you know there's no such thing

I heard he boiled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That's a lie

We're left with some stories inert
But this is the part that will hurt
And nobody learned
And now nothing grows here

Always a shy, unremarkable man
Then one day he'd had it, and threw up his hands
He filled up his lungs, and he pulled at his hair
And he curled up his lips and he bellowed
"You'll never know how sorry you'll be"

I heard he dabbled into
witchcraft, I heard occult
Oh, they're pretty much the same
I guess he was adopted, or raised by wolves
That's ridiculous to say

I heard he boiled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That's a lie

We're left with some stories inert
But this is the part that will hurt
And nobody learned
And now nothing grows

Always a shy, unremarkable man
Then one day he'd had it, and threw up his hands
He filled up his lungs and he pulled in his hair
And he curled up his lips and he bellowed
"You'll never know how sorry you'll be"

The looks on their faces
You'd swear they were dead
It finally sunk in to their bones what he said
Thes seeds will be bitter, the harvest will crumble
Your fields will lay fallow for years
And nothing will grow

People will speak of him once in a while
as legend would have it you'll hear it for miles
he'll curse up a blue streak add lead to the air
and stink like all matter of things
And nothing will grow
