Love Is A Dog From Hell (2020)


Love Is A Dog From Hell – Harvey Dog (2020)

Life is kinda lonely when the rivers are low,
you know, John Prine told me so,
there is no secret, there is no mystery,
everybody struggles to be free,
a flower in the sewer captures my attention,
I pluck that flower, improve my situation

Love is a dog
love is a dog from hell
bow wow – ruff ruff
love is a dog from hell

Streetlights flicker raindrops dance on concrete,
a mist hovers, faint screams echo the silence,
junkies search for invisible veins to prick,
a lonely prostitute asks me: “What do you want?”
a street preacher, he starts to sing:
“love is a dog, love is a dog from hell
love is a dog, love is a dog from hell
bow wow – ruff ruff”

Sunshine is broken, storm clouds in the distance,
unspoken words scream belated regrets,
cracked spider webs contain flaming candles,
these distant dreams go beyond good and evil
nothing makes sense in the land of loneliness,
fires rage within the clouds of emptiness,
time passes slowly eventually she goes,
you know, John Prine told me so

Love is a dog
love is a dog
love is a dog from hell (3X)
bow wow – ruff ruff
