Now I'd seen him despondent 
A few times as of late 
Sometimes the answer that love gives 
Is the hardest one to take 
I know he was prone to paint 
The voice of his own fear 
So vincent he picked up the blade 
And he put it to his ear

Look at yourself in the mirror 
You're all rumpled red stubbled and gaunt 
You walk a dead end path in a dry corn field 
And now this morose response 
Your princess she don't want to see you 
No your princess she don't want to hear 
So vincent he picked up the blade 
And he put it to his ear

Now look if you're gonna come around here 
And say those sort of things 
You gotta take a few on the chin 
You talking about love and all that stuff 
You better bring your thickest skin 
Sometimes you can't please everyone 
Sometimes you can't please anyone at all 
You sew your heart onto your sleeve 
And wait for the ax to fall

You there with the paint box 
You there with paper and pen 
Me I got this blunt instrument 
I'm gonna play on 'til the end 
And you know you come with empty hands 
Or you don't come at all 
You deal your best hand out in the marketplace 
And let the chips fall

The package it comes wrapped up 
There is a lesson here 
Vincent he picked up the blade 
And he put it to his ear

Now look if you're gonna come around here 
And say those sort of things 
You gotta take a few on the chin 
Yeah you're talking about sin and redemption 
Well you better wear your thickest skin 
Sometimes you can't please everyone 
Sometimes you can't please anyone at all 
Sew your heart onto your sleeve 
And wait for the ax to fall
