Lyrics
(Gary Morris - Eddie Setser)

There's a man on the street with a gun in his hand
And his back against the wall
He's got kids to feed
He doesn't know if he'll be able to steal at all.

Tomorrow he'll be front page news
You'll see it on TV
How a father of five was killed last night
Attempted robbery.

Chorus:
Anything goes
When everything's gone
When you lose all hope
There ain't no right or wrong
You can reach out
But you can't hold on
Anything goes
When everything's gone.

There's a lady I know who sells herself
At the Paradise Cafe
As a girl they called her Angel
But Angel drifted away.

Somewhere in time
She crossed the line
Where feelings are all gone
For a price she'll warm a strangers bed
With a heart that's cold as stone.

She cries
Anything goes
'Cause everything's gone
When you lose all hope
There ain't no right or wrong.

You can reach out
But you can't hold on
Anything goes
When everything's gone.

There's a world outside
That seldom sleeps
It's unknown to us all
Well they got guns
And we got guns
Who'll be the first to draw.

Up on high the powers lie
The numbers are so small
With one mistake all the dams will break
And then God help us all.

Chorus:
Cause if anything goes
Then everything's gone
When you lose all hope
There ain't no right or wrong
You can reach out
But you can't hold on
If anything goes
Then everything's gone...
