Spoon – The Hardest Cut Lyrics

The Hardest Cut Lyrics – Spoon

You took off in the dead of night
But before you did, got your hair combed right, yeah
The neighborhood watch knows the score
And they’re knockin’ at your door, let ’em knock some more

They sayin’ you need a little protection
But followin’ the leader gonna turn you off the religion

It’s comin’ down, the hardest cut
World wars in your mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
We live on a knife
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut

I took off in the dead of night
But before I did, got my affairs in order and my boots on
The [?] needs a score
And they’re knockin’ at my door, let ’em knock some more

They sayin’ I need a little direction
But followin’ the leader gonna turn me off the religion

Oh, it’s comin’ down, the hardest cut
World wars in my mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
We live on a knife
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut

Ah, ooh

Oh, it’s comin’ down, the hardest cut
World wars in my mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
Who’s takin’ a life?
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut
