Jeffrey Lionel

lyrics

Jeffrey Lionel was a dangerous man,
remembered for the 17 that he silenced.
Wisconsin knew he was not like the others.
But none of these will make you understand.

Better stick to the original plan.
There was a time when you could see him smiling,
playing pranks on his miserly brothers,
the promise of dreamless sleep in his hand.

North 25th street
just south of West Highland avenue
A brief stint in the hot seat,
Tracy was glad to be alive.
Day after day
Week after week
Just to see it all go to waste

A desperate man will take a chance in the night
Poverty and despair can be stifling
A routine job in a modest apartment
$50 makes it seem alright
He's got a drill and he is good with a knife
His camera flashes and your heart rate is rising
You're fading fast but he's not even started
A speck of dust in the grand design

North 25th street
just south of West Highland avenue
A brief stint in the hot seat,
Tracy was glad to be alive.
Day after day
Week after week
Just to see it all go to waste.

Day after day
Week after week
Just to see it all go to waste.
Day after day
Week after week
Just to see it all go to waste.
