APPLESKIN THOMAS is my call

No one's gonna pick me before I fall
Old men with games is all very fine
But don't go touch the fruit on the vine
'Cause I don't want to die
I don't want to...
Some filthy picker's hand might fall on me
And just by chance pick me from this tree
Ending right there I'll have died in vain
I'll have lived my life for some fool's gain
But, I just want to be free
I just want to...
APPLESKIN THOMAS should be us all
'Cause who wants to die before they fall?
Be chosen just to be used and killed
Because of what some old fool has willed
You go 'cause they want to be free
But then are you?
