You can bury the hatchet, you can bury the ax
You can bury the hatchet, but it don't change the act
You can bury the hatchet, 6 feet underground
But you know it's still, it's still there, when you're done

Now you say to forgive, to forgive is divine
You say to forget, that's human, just a matter of mind
You say to forgive, is a gift, a gift come from God
But I say No No, it's the other way around

You can go way too far, you can cross a line
You can make up your plot and fire a shot that echoes thru time
You can bury the body in its coat, and cover it with lies
And I may forgive, but won't forget, till I die

Something's rotten in Denmark and down here in Deer Cove
Something's rotten all over and down deep in my soul
Every heart has a hole, every heart has a hole
With its own hatchet, buried deep, long ago
