Song 179: "Gavrilo" - The Dreadnoughts

Hello my dear old friend
Good to see your face again
How is your little cell? 
And do they treat you well? 
The last time that we met
Your blood was running hot
Your handshake it was fine
You’re happy then you’re not
Gavrilo you’re mine 

The silver bullet would not miss
There was a poison in that kiss
(Black and yellow!)
Come on, come on, come on
(Black and yellow!)
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo 

Now tell me how it feels
To see it all revealed
To see the world aflame
A curse upon your name
Machines that will not quit
Obscenity and sin
I hope you will permit
This crooked little grin 

No matter how your good book reads
In the beginning was the deed
(Black and yellow!)
Come on, come on, come on
(Black and yellow!)
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo!

Did you ever wonder how you got your name?*
And why the people here all look the same? 
The angel Gabriel appeared, they got his message loud and clear
And now they’re on their knees, crying father please
They wallow in disease, and sing in minor keys 

No matter how your good book reads
In the beginning was the deed
(Black and yellow!)
Come on, come on, come on
(Black and yellow!)
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo


*Gavrilo is the Serbian form of Gabriel, often portrayed as the angel messenger of God, often bringing such important word as Mary's pregnancy, the word to Muhammad, and appearing to other prophets. In some faiths Gabriel is the one who will announce the rapture with his horn.
