Should've known that you'd cover your tracks
running from the truth
Up all night with your bloodshot eyes
but the hounds are on the loose
Red light green light, ride in the dead of night
They're just a step behind
If you face the flame it'll burn you the same
When you're standing at the end of the line

Underneath the troubled skies, when I'm walking in the rain
and I feel as though it's come time to make a change
I am choking on the bones and I've come to realize
We are skipping like a stone thrown into the night

Back on the streets you've got blood on your feet
You've been running with the pack
Playing the game with the ball and chain
Ain't nobody gonna cut you slack
Top hat money stacked but like a dirty rat
You crawl into your hole
You might've jumped the line but you know you're gonna find
Everybody's got to pay the toll

Listen to the soapbox junkie ranting on the street
You might call him crazy and throw a dollar at his feet
'Cause in your mind, that is free, but so intangible
and when the lights go out, you are just an animal
