"Mark"

Chorus:
They come to hunt the poor man
When his luck runs out
They come to hunt they come to take you
Down down down

...

Mark:
So I'm at the bar with Ramon and the boys and Ramon’s like, "Hey, I know this sweet score but its gonna take some cojones!" and he starts talking about some hush hush secret super soldier program the government's got going and how they got this guy who’s half machine and they’re trying to build phase two, which is like either an army of robot fairies for him to lead, or some kind of tank they attach his bottom half to and Ramon doesn't know, but there's this tinker’s shop where they’re putting the plans together and every Thursday some government liaison goes there to meet with this tinker, and some guy named Lloyd, and some woman named Llewelyn who they say is related to Edgar Mcalistair, like, THE Edgar Mcalastair and they got these plans there and if we steal 'em we could start a bidding war between the government and the resistance and it'd be the biggest payday ever seen but I'm like, "Hell no! That's how to get killed!" But then later, as we’re getting drunk Brandon's starting in on me, like how I'm a lame thief and I don't have the sauce for it, and finally I'm like, "Screw you, Brandon!! Me and Ramon are gonna steal these plans and it'll be epic and I’ll show you!"

Chorus:
They come to hunt the poor man
When his luck runs out
They come to hunt they come to take you
Down down down

...

Mark:
So we do the job, but it all goes completely wrong cause that Llewelyn woman was there, and she scared Ramon who shot her and I'm like, “ Hell no, I didn't sign up for no murder charge!” Cause I ain't never seen someone killed before and it's not good, it's not good at all, and so I'm puking on the floor, but we did get these plans in this folder but they’re weird, bruh, I don't even know what they're for and we get away and so later that night we’re at Ramon's celebrating, except I'm not celebrating. I'm crying and sobbing. Wait, no, don't tell Brandon I said that, I totally didn't cry, I'm like stone cold. So anyway, Ramon won't let go of these plans. He’s clutching them and he’s getting lit on this drug called TanSan like completely blitzed out, and suddenly he just disappears, like, one second he’s on the sofa and the next he’s gone and I'm like, “Woah, this is like some end up in the psych ward stuff” and he stays gone for like two hours, but then two hours later he just pops right back in with some story about going back in time to a prairie, only he had the plans with him, but he dropped them there and didn't bring them back and right then we hear sirens

Chorus:
They come to hunt the poor man
When his luck runs out
They come to hunt they come to take you
Down down down

Mark:
So I just bail and Ramon was behind me, but because he’s all drugged out he’s slow and the cops nab him, but I just keep running and I head underground thinking maybe I’ll go hide with the voodoopunks, but the tunnels under the city are like a maze, bruh and there’s like weird people down there so I gave up on that. Wandering around the dark is not my thing. I figure I’ll just stay outta sight up here and the next thing I know, I'm hearing they interrogated Ramon to death and they're after me, so I’ve been hiding and running and I'm not doing too well, but that's not all, cause now they’re rounding up every druggie they can get their hands on and word is they got this big warehouse they’re sticking 'em all in and they’re force-feeding them TanSan until one of them blips like Ramon and goes to that prairie place and brings them back their folder and if your girl was taken that's where she is and you just better hope she hasn't dropped dead of a drug overdose because they’re burning through druggies and I'm sorry but that's all I can help you with cause I'm staying out of sight until this whole thing blows over and if you were smart you’d stay out of it too but either way nice to meet you, good luck and I'm out of here

Chorus:
They come to hunt the poor man
When his luck runs out
They come to hunt they come to take you
Down down down
