Splinter by Kevin Nolan (c)

'went to the river in another
part of town 

'want you to give her exactly what you found 
 

and when it’s over you will be alright 
never again alone again in the middle of the night 

Oh Girl 

Send him a letter tell him what you found 
at the end of the river buried in the ground 


and just like the splinter in the lion’s skin 
you’ll be never again a slave again restoring everything 

Oh Girl 

Use a voice of silver in the letter that you write 
she’s not the killer, make him see the light 


happy ever after, let us never speak again 
of the day we found a soul of sin in a child of only ten.
