Beckett and Goya the Two Halves of Danger

The dogs from the desert
have come round my house
as I dance with Lolita
in her low-cut blouse
Whispers in the backroom
laughter on the porch
as cigar smoke hangs
in the moonlight torch

Let the strong wine follow
every sour dog's breath
the dirt on their sweat
is the smell of sure death

If he lets loose his dogs
of sick paranoia
watch them fall at the feet
of Beckett and Goya

Camacho was my friend
but he became my foe
What lived in his head
none of us will know
He went behind my back
thought he’d take me down
When jackals meet a dog
blood falls upon the ground

Lost in the night
you meet two halves of danger
alone in the dark
face to face with two strangers

Who is this Beckett
and what about Goya?
you’d best stay out of sight
in case they destroy ya

Camacho was my friend
but he became my foe
What lived in his head
none of us will know
He went behind my back
thought he’d take me down
When jackals meet a dog
blood falls upon the ground

The two halves of danger
are wary of strangers
who arrive after dark

The two halves of danger
get suspicious of strangers
who bite and who bark

With Lolita in my arms
there’s no sleep tonight
a rifle by the bed
should there be a gun fight

So let the records show
that Beckett and Goya
did not set out to slay
beneath the sequoia

Camacho was my friend
but he became my foe
What lived in his head
none of us will know
He went behind my back
thought he’d take me down
When jackals meet a dog
blood falls upon the ground
