Healing holy man, once upon a time
He lived for his wife up until the crime

Hunting high and low to seek revenge
Brand new moral code, got made reluctant renegade
Leaving empty souls when he avenged
Evil spirits flowed he drank the blood like lemonade

Cozy campfire crowd with a case of wine
And feeling fine
Bounty hunter now and they'd crossed the line
Crossed that line

Hunting high and low to seek revenge
Brand new moral code got made reluctant renegade
Leaving empty souls when he avenged
Evil spirits flowed he drank the blood like lemonade

In a border town, down in Mexico
They let him go
Law and order now 'cause he runs the show
So now you know

Hunting high and low, exact revenge
Brand new moral code got made reluctant renegade
Leaving empty souls when he avenged
Evil spirits flow he drank the blood like lemonade

Hunting high and low, exact revenge
Brand new moral code got made reluctant renegade
Leaving empty souls when he avenged
Evil spirits flow he drank the blood like lemonade

He drank the blood like lemonade
He drank the blood like lemonade
He drank the blood like lemonade

great way to start out my morning. Thank you! 
Heard this on the Man On The Moon episode of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy. It reminded me how much I enjoy it.

C'mon Bill...I can't leave my office if you continue playing such fine music {#Exclaim}
Are we sure he didn't drink the blood-like lemonade?

HATE..THIS..SONG..

 
Why?  Just curious.
HATE..THIS..SONG..
It seems that Morcheeba's beats tend to follow similar and distinct patterns.
{#Heartkiss}
I wish this band would stop changing the lyrics to their song.

Definitely creepy. Thanks for the link Fred.

 
Creepy? Crappy more like, it is a shite video and does not fit the song at all, sorry I do not understand what's creepy about it. {#Headache}

The official video is cool and creepy. As is the song. 9 from the spooked Nottingham jury.

Southern trees bear a strange fruit.
I am so hooked on this song !
 
more Morcheeba please (missed them completely, I gotta catch up) 
feels so good
Creepy!
Skye come away with me to Mexico!
Very well written lyrics.  Damn good job.
I like it.  Now play Poncho and Lefty, seems to fit, 
Oh, SNAP!

Love Kate, but I'd marry Skye for that voice alone.

Have always loved Morcheeba. More-cheeba!
8→9 I'm liking this{#Dance}
{#Heartkiss} .. just love the album, this is an excellent track - it's "Outstanding" for me
Great melody, vocals, production.............could the lyrics be ANY darker.....good grief!

I love everything you're doing tonight, Bill. Jam on
Aha... it's on again... "Last play: May 22, 2013 - 10:30".

Looks at clock: 10:31

Okay, you win this one, Bill.

Second Morcheeba song of the day here on RP, and that's a good thing, I think.
Delightful melody
Over this song.

I like Morcheeba and I like this one, but I think they're starting to pilfer from themselves. The chorus here shares quite a bit of tune and beat DNA with their song Blindfold. Have a listen.
This song is starting to get my attention after hearing it several times here.
Is there a replay button here? Man, I love this song.

Yes, 5 for Peter Gabriel's Listening Wind (last song) and then 5 for this!
 
Yup, it is decent, but a bit thin, kinda like lemonade might feel in place of blood. 
Check out Skye's new(?) work, "Back to Now"  it is breathtaking.

I hate it when I have to agree with you, but I do....this time.
Heard this in Barcelona.  Got my attention because it wasn't in Spanish.  
Oddly appealing giving the gruesome subject matter {#Cheers} 
This takes a while to get going. The vocals and melody are rough in the beginning. Then, flows like bloody lemonade.
Oh boy! I love this tune...so seamless yet poignant at the same time. BLISS.

Sounds like a good song for the new series Revolution!
Looking forward to hearing more of the 20 tracks in the RP library Bill.  I just LOVE Morcheeba.  8>9 {#Yes}

Why do you assume he was thinking of a band member?  Maybe Stingray was just indulging in a bit of oikophilia.
 
{#Eh}
I was certain this was "What It's Like" by Everlast when this came on. Beat is nearly identical.
Not bad!
Pure genius.
And another 10!

Gotta say I agree. The simplicity is a beautiful thing. I like the simplicity of the song too. Just really great.
                                              
                                             
                      

Reading Shadow of the Sun, listening to RP play favorites and tunes unknown to me. Perfect. Thank you RP.
pushing this one up to a 9- great song for a sunny lazy afternoon!
arrrrgggghhhhhh

Morcheeba never sounded better than with SKYE. Gods, what a voice! {#Good-vibes}
First I've heard this but I luv it already. Not generally one to give out 8's quickly but this has my toes tapping!

Hmm, it does sound a bit like Grace sounds on "Triad."

Beautiful, seamless transition from Peter Gabriel to Morcheeba. Another reason I love RP the most!
I'd marry Skye just for her voice....sing to me Milady.

Agreed!!  Skye is da bomb — what a great voice!

What exactly does it do to a feller?  Probably the same thing Grace Slick (who this singer sounds like) did to me in the late 60s.

please give us moreMorcheeba!!
i love this album cover!
Bought this album based on hearing this track here.  It's a very good album.  More tracks should get play here, especially "Even Though" and "Recipe For Disaster" (my personal favorite).

If Neil Young was younger and a bit more hip...cross him with a bit of 'Travis' and you got this sound! Love it...!

Good luck with that. (Intelligent women generally know how to spell "intelligent".)

 
Well, he is looking for a woman with a "petty" face too.  Wow, what a catch this guy is.

Hey Stingray, something we can agree on!  Puts "Time Waits For No One" to shame.

Reminds me of the early cartoon Andy Borowitz says he drew—-Man kneeling to take the Eucharist: "Can I have fries with that?" lol

Saw them last fall. The cheeb be cool! This is by far the best track on this album, but now that Skye's back, even their average stuff is really good.

The "Cheeb" is growing on me. Like pretty warts.


Mor cheeba anytime you want Bill...8 > 9 on the way to 10.

MORCHEEBA is bed music - ask the girls!

SENSUAL! > 8+

PS
Today is only Tuesday - shit!
3 more days and I will let Morcheeba rotate.

Yep, I could just hear this song on the TB soundtrack. A shame that, over this side of the Pond, TB's been transferred to pay satellite channels (thanks a feckin' bundle, Rupert) so us non-satellite plebs can no longer watch it. A shame, as I really liked the back to basics TB take on vampirism: sex, blood and violence, as it should be, none of this poncey McVampire 'new chastity' Stephanie Meyer bollox.

Wow, really?  I hear the music much more than I hear the lyrics...I do hear them, but hardly pay attention...

Hearing the lyrics, it's perhaps 'chilling' in the 'frightening' sense.

One of the great questions of our time...

Who really cares about what the lyrics say, Morcheeba is back!!  love that vibe.

Me?  Literal-minded?  Yes, pretty much.

Liked it more as the song went on...
...i'm sorry, but blood and lemonade do not mix - maybe puréed raspberries instead...

Misheard the title line as "Bud Lite Lemonade".  Not sure if that would be better or worse.
 
Well, there's already a Bud Lite Lime, so I guess it's just a matter of time.  Cool song.

So pleased Skye is back. Only she completes the Morcheeba sound.
Nice!
