Killer Wants To Go To College II

ŠPaul Simon, released on Songs from The Capeman, 1997

.

[Sal:]

I know you're trying to protect me

Searching for another truth

With your language and your poetry

From my ignorance and youth

.

Hey I did not come to argue

My life never made much sense

I just wish that I could hug you

You're my only defense

.

I don't understand your writing

I could barely sign my name

All I ever learned was fighting

But I'm not the only one to blame

.

The streets were dark with danger

I have to stand up for my friends

In a land where I'm a stranger

And the hatred never ends

.

[Inmate:]

Killer wants to go on T.V.
