My shoes are heavy
I look for her in corners
What I eat is eating me
I'm one jack short of a royal flush
Here come the salvation in the shape of my guitar

I don't want your soul
I just want to get right down and lick it up
Mother Mercy told me
She told me no self respecting hero ever cries
The victim walks alone
The paper wraps the stone
The lights go down, the heat goes up, that's when I cry
I don't want your money
I don't a reason

The only game in town that gets me high
I don't want your money
I don't want your soul
I don't need a reason
