Strip Mind

So there you were left to die

Poised on the point of no return

One toss of the dice look the snake in the eye

The game is over how many bridges were burned

In your face ripped straight through your head

Down your spine the disease has been spread

Up your nose it went straight to your head

No more money to burn when your heart is stopped dead

You’ve been

Stripmined / Didn’t you listen to the warning bells ring

Stripmined / Weren’t you there to hear the song that I sing

Stripmined / Then came the day when we all dressed in black

Stripmined / Now the truth is clear there ain’t no way back

(lyrics) circa mid-1990s
