Pendulum
Mark Lanegan Lyrics


Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful price to pay
He's left his life in a thunderstorm
Tears cold dark eyes upon
Swing pendulum, swing low
Got no place to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be
Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful place to leave
With frost on the limbs of a cherry tree
This cold, cold wind is buryin' me
Swing pendulum, swing slow
Got no time to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be

Jesus Christ been here and gone
what a painful price to pay
He's left his life in a thunderstorm
Tears cold dark eyes upon
Swing pendulum, swing low
Got no place to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be (2x)
Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful place to leave
With frost on the limbs of a cherry tree
This cold, cold wind is buryin' me
Swing pendulum, swing slow
Got no time to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be (2x)

I remember listening to this during one of the toughest periods of my life & I gotta say this song helped me in ways most people will never understand ....Mark is a dark saint

damn right - the guy has lived through it all, he's so authentic! "he's a man of (VERY) few words, but they're all the right ones" :)

Thank you for making this. One of my favorite songs for sipping whiskey pensively, and the photos complement it perfectly. Are you the photog?

"I'm as tired as a man can be"... brilliant!

monah7mama7zu I listened to this phrase when I was reading this

I have been there if that is what you are asking. I shot the photos in the video. I wanted to create a visual of what his music makes me think or reminds me of. A Ghost Town to me is perfect. This one especially. A lot in common lyrically and the history of the town. Although its all in a personal interpretation, this is just mine and thought it worked well with his music. :)
