Of the darkness in men's minds what can you say
That wasn't marked by history or the TV news today
He gets away with murder blizzards come and go
The stab and glare and buckshot of the heavy heavy snow
It comes and goes, it comes and goes

His grandpa loved an empire, his sister loved a thief
And Lindsey loved the ways of darkness beyond belief
Girls in chilly blouses blizzards come and go
The stab and glare and buckshot of the heavy, heavy snow
It comes and goes, it comes and goes

Cops don't seem to care for derelicts or ladies of the night
They're weeds for yanking out of sight if you're smart or rich or lucky
Maybe you'll beat the laws of man but the inner laws of spirit
And the outer laws of nature no man can, no, no man can

There lives a wolf in Lindsey raids and runs
Through the hills of Hollywood and the downtown slums
He gets away with murder blizzards come and go
The stab and glare and buckshot of the heavy, heavy snow
It comes and goes, it comes and goes
