The street is cold, the dawn is grey
My work is finished, or so I've been told

I took a shot on the chin
Tell by the shape I'm in
In line of fire, you know what to say
My legs keep movin', I don't seem to stray

We walked in darkness, kept hittin' the walls
I found the secret, the key to it all
I got the Nouveauree
I traded you for me

Sometimes for free I got to pay it to come lookin' for me
Wearin' Yves St. Laurent barely stay on cause I'm so God damn gaunt
