I got dark like Johnny Cash with this one. Its based on Truman Capote's book.

Blood Runs Colder

I'd never met him before
But I liked him better than most
He seemed a decent man
And I thought so right up til I slit his throat.

My buddy wanted more than cash
But I think somethings are worse than death so
I saved the girl with a shotgun blast
And then I had to finish all of the rest.

I think my blood just must run colder
Than what's in other folks.
And I'm no closer to understandin' it
Here near the end of my rope.
I'm near the end of my rope.

Out beyond the wall
The men are cutting trees
And in the corner of the yard
A wooden stair is being built just for me

I think my blood just must run colder
Than what's in other folks.
And I'm no closer understandin' it
Here near the end of my rope.

But I... still dream
Of Mexico and the bluest sea
And I'm running on the beach
In my whole who life I have never felt that free

I think there must be something wrong
For me to do the things I do
I would like to apologize
But who can I apologize to?

I think my blood just must run colder
Than what's in other folks.
And I'm no closer to understandin' it
Here near the end of my rope.
Rope...
Here near the end of my rope.
Rope
I'm near the end of my rope.
I see the end of my rope.
I've reached the end of my
