Sever the Sprawl by greebo published on 2011/05/19 11:49:24 +0000 This song is based on the main character from Neuromancer, a favourite book of mine for many years now. The music is Mideion's which I mixed and then wrote and recorded the lyrics. Am very happy with this one :) Lyrics: Cowboy in the Sprawl You never thought your life would come to this Your nerves are spliced and raw Sitting here, trapped in your own flesh You couldn't see, wouldn't breathe, As you tried to claw back your old game. Cowboy in the Sprawl Broken down and too easy to play. You are shaken You are lonely You have nothing You are weak There is no thing That can save you So you take This time to drink ... in the Sprawl Lady Luck came through You grabbed the chance, you had nothing to lose Nerves restored and strong You did the work and didn't think it through But they could see And they could lead You down the rabbit hole so flash It turns out Lady Luck Is just another hustler out for cash Cowboy in the Sprawl.
