The Mountain Goats – Mark on You Lyrics

Mark on You Lyrics By The Mountain Goats

When this is over
When we leave this all behind us
Deep in the moonless night
When the rescue team finds us
It’s going to get so dark for you
I’m going to leave a mark on you

Can’t trust anybody
Even the tough ones crack
Train up a swordsman
To stab you in the back

I Know This Much Is True
I’m going to leave a mark on you

No man knows
The hour, or the day
But the mark is going to be visible
From several blocks away

Maybe you’ll make it
To the far side of the hill
Maybe you will see me coming
But I don’t think you will

Make peace with your family
Walk softly on this earth
