Tom The Butcher - Original Song Lyrics by Christopher Dapo

Updated on August 3, 2011
Tom The Butcher
Tom The Butcher


Wanna sing
Wanna bring
My heart out to you
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Wanna cry
Wanna die
In your arms tonight

Wanna tend
To the temptress
Without the emptiness
Oh? Oh hell

Wanna send her a seed
A flower that
She'll need
Oh so sweet


Once Tom was a poser
Never once made the roster
He felt like
Riding his bike
And not a coaster

He wasn't built on an assembly
Instead he focused on his energy
Took his might
Took a night
To let him be

Then he thought he saw another
Filled his heart up with wonder
Took a slice
Paid the price
To set him free


Once Tom went to see her
All he wanted was to be heard
But the fight
Wasn't right
And now he's alone
Oh no!
Now he's back there in the alleyway
Practicing for when its time to slay
Time the piper
Paid the price
The time is today
Run away!
Run away, run away, run away, run away
Run away, run away, run away, run away
Run away, run away, run away

Run away
It's too late

Chorus x2

Oh, so sweet
It's what she'll need
Watching them bleed
Ohh, so sweet...

      Thank you, Rosemay! I guess I really wouldn't mind doing it a cappella, but I would rather get a band together first and sing it with the music.

      I'm a natural vocalist mostly, and I write lyrics, but I'm planning on getting some guitar lessons in here pretty soon. I've messed with drums and keyboards some, but guitar is where I wanna be and I think I need to be the lead vocalist/guitarist to get things moving in the right direction.

      Granted, if I could just move ahead without requiring the instrumentation on my own, in other words, finding members for a band, that would be awesome. Here's hoping!

      Wow, that's awesome you two tried to sing my song, chanroth. It actually has a sort of upbeat punk feel to it (think closer to Nirvana), but rapping it is cool, too!

      Do you listen to Kurt Cobain? I can sing most of his stuff, pretty close to his voice, we have similar vocal ranges.

      Anyhow, much appreciation, thanks for the compliment, I'm glad you loved it!
