Soul of a Man
by Beck

Album: Modern Guilt (2008)
  • Beat my bones against the wall
    Staring down an empty hall
    Deep down in a hollow log
    Coming home like a letter bomb

    Cold was the storm
    That covered the night

    Call a doctor, call a ghost
    Put a fire into your bones
    Sic a dog on all you know
    Cut it loose before you go

    Cold was the storm
    That covered the night

    What makes the soul, the soul of a man?

    Beat my bones against the wall
    Put a bank note on your bond
    Gris Gris and a goldenrod
    Down deep in a hollow log

    Cold was the storm
    That buried the night

    What makes the soul, the soul of a man? Writer/s: Beck Hansen
    Publisher: Kobalt Music Publishing Ltd.
