lyrics

no blood
no turnip
not a stone
alone in debtor's prison
debtor's prison all alone

They sent the sheriff to my house
my dear wife answered the door
with a crying baby in her arms
the sheriff says where has your husband gone
we'll smoke him out

you'll never find him she says
as shes pointing right under the bed
where i am hiding
they drag me out in chains

no blood
no turnip
not a stone
alone in debtor's prison
debtor's prison all alone

no cushion
no savings
no safety net

in our hearts
we have pockets
of lazy regret

alone in debtor's prison
debtor's prison all alone
