lyrics

GOLDEN GLOVES

You will destroy the one thing that you love
You'll be destroyed by the thing you love
So goes the story of Mohammed Ali
And his golden glove

You will break the things you try to touch
You will care entirely too much
Like a dog who bites the hand that feeds
It will be too hard for you to see

When you deny the truth that's on your face
When you become the one thing that you hate
When you realize that it's already too late
And everything you built will one day break

I will fail and I will let you down
I'm not as strong as the drummer makes me sound
I will deceive the moment that you trust
I will care about myself too much

You will hate Joseph for his technicolor coat
You will kill Lennon for the pop songs that he wrote
You will hold a knife to your own throat
You will trade humanity for gold

You will bow down to the gods who you are told
You will buy all of the stories that they sold
You'll be the first to cast the second stone
You will believe that the pattern is too old

You will destroy the one thing that you love
You'll be destroyed by the thing you love
So goes the story of Mohammed Ali
And his golden glove

I will forgive the things that you've done wrong
I will kiss the blood off of your palms
I will return your hatred with my love
I will return the hatred with my love

The hatred for my love
The hatred for my love
The hatred for my love
