I wear a hair shirt round my shoulder.
Got a cold stew in my spoon.
And I'm falling on my head, lifting feet of lead
Now it's got me baying at the moon.
Well, there's a race on for tomorrow.
I'm stretching out for what might have been.
Going to come out from the night,
Got my second sight
Play rough you know what I mean.
I'm going for the kill.
I'm going tooth and nail
Up that dusty hill on the rattlesnake trail.

Got the law laid down to the left of me.
Got the real world to the right.
