Our existence is constrained - by feelings like dread, states like wretchedness, pain - und so Weiter. Not much else to say - Ball And Chain.

Ball and Chain

----------------

The ball is made of stone and metal,

Stone and metal,

Stone and metal and a grip from hell,

A grip from hell, and the Word of God, ...


The ball ties back, to the point of it all,

The point of it all,

The origin point, (it) is the one of no return

I wish you well you poor old sod, ...



Same ol' hurdles same ol' burden

Ball n' chain

Ball n' chain


A lot unknown and nothin' is certain

Ball n' chain

Ball n' chain


I'm just sayin' it's not gonna change

Ball 'n chain

Ball 'n chain


At the most you can rattle it, isn't it strange?

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain








Within my bounds I've been luggin' it around,

Luggin' it around, ..

In tandem with Sisyphus,

Doin' it cos' , because I was, ...


Because I was born with a ball n' chain,

Born in pain

I'll live in pain and die in pain

Left in my wake is the Ball n' chain ...




Locked in Time and held in Space

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain


Buckle up and suck it up and count your days

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain


Any which way you're cuttin' it close

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain


What your score is, no one knows

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain












Ferrule around my ankle, for it there ain't no painkiller ,

Jus' some day my ink 'll dry, bet on the pig you think ' ll fly,

The rule of thumb is tow the line, it'll all turn out to be just fine .




You got yours and I got mine

Ball n' chain

Ball n' chain


The anchor drops at the hour of dyin'

Ball n' chain

Ball n' chain


Same ol' dread an' th' same ol' pain

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain


You're gonna have to drag it, day out day in

Ball n' chain

Ball 'n chain
