Slow March​/​Schlitzie, Last of the Aztecs, Lodges An Objection in the Order of Things

from Witness by Jack O' The Clock

lyrics

It could have been worse for you, I'm thinking,
living out your long life
in between the road and Fountain View
with a name and people around you
who bothered to use it.
You didn't have to know you were a monster
or a ship without a crew
or that despite this some still envied you.
Did you even need to know you were a man?
Well, you were a man: of iron principles.

"1 2 3 4 5 6 7," you said,
You even gave us 9 and 10.
"But leave your filthy eights at the door," you sneered,
"Leave your filthy eights at the door."
