about

It's a bouncy little tale about a man who "makes his living" by preying on unsuspecting women who he marries and robs... until one day he crosses the wrong woman. A bold and upbeat song with a folky flare, this tune from The Cog is Dead will get heads bobbing, toes tapping... and maybe even see a little justice done.

lyrics

LYRICS:

There's a man in the darkness of the night
A cunning casanova who's as sharp as a knife
He'll swoop right in and whisper in your ear
And tell you sweet young ladies just what you want to hear

Big flashy smile, sure and in control
And piercing eyes that seem to look right into your soul
Feels like a dream with his arms around you wrapped
But then before you know it now he's got you trapped!

He's the kind of man who'll take you by the hand
Promise you the earth, the moon and stars
But behind those eyes is a cesspool full of lies
He'll use you up and leave you only scars
But I don't think he'll get far!

A sneaky thief, he goes from town to town
To find a lonely victim he can go take down
He plays the prince, makes them think he's a big shot
He woos 'em and he weds 'em then he takes all they got

He targets in on his next potential prey
A gal named Katie Ledford who he thinks he'll sweep away
He makes his move, tries to look like he's a catch
But little does he know that he's just met his match!

He's the kind of man who'll take you by the hand
Promise you the earth, the moon and stars
But behind those eyes is a cesspool full of lies
He'll use you up and leave you only scars
But I know he won't get far!

So Katie waits as he moves in, she knows that he's no good
He sings his song she plays along just like he hoped she would
They dine and dance the night away, he can't believe his luck
He says "Why don't we catch a ride?" she says "Let's take my truck."

And so he goes along and he hops in the truck with her
He thinks, "This one was easy!" as his vision starts to blur
Then things go dark, and when he awakens next
He's locked inside a room and facing every ex!

She's the kind of girl who'll take you for a whirl
Makes you think that she's an easy prey
But she's way too wise, and sees though all your lies
And if you try her you won't get away
'Cause she's gonna make you pay!
