I know this world is vicious darling lets make tracks now
Black out all the city lights and drink till we both grown numb
And lay down to sleep I feel like I ran all day
And maybe everything will stop for one night at last
Your eyes are looking bright girl like fireflies caught in a glass
You scrub up pretty well all dressed in your finery


And how will they speak of us when the night is gone
The incessant whisper in your ear that haunted you to long
How you shivered as the wind shook through the alleyways
And box cars so let’s dance
And we like spectres drifting in to the dark
Oh I know a place were we can go

I know this world is vicious darling lets make tracks now
We’ll burn every history book and start our lives here, Drink up
Forget all about, the lost little life time brought our way
To end the violence, and the petitiuos war
For every crooked politician there’s a thousand more
Drink up; forget all about the lost little life time brought our way

Solo

I know this world is vicious darling lets make tracks now
Black out all the city lights and drink till we both grown numb
And lay down to sleep I feel like I ran all day
