I put this deal together With everything I have left.
Every last feather I'd saved to make my nest.
If you look in my basket,
That's all of my eggs. If I drop it I'll be lucky if they only break my legs,
Drop it I'll be lucky if they only break my legs.

It's a long shot,
But it's my only way out. It's a long shot,
But it's my only way out.

At my accountant's suggestion, I stole this car from a thief.
The pills I'm ingesting are meant to bolster belief
That the string will stay strung for at least a little while,
That the chewing gum will stick it for at least another mile,
Chewing gum will stick it for at least another mile.

It's a long shot, But it's my only way out. It¹s a long shot,
But it's my only way out.

God bless the lies I told today,
God keep them strong, don't let them fail,
And God bless every God damn day
That they keep me out of that Belgian jail.
All them people with money say they don't pay it no mind.
I wonder what they think about all of the time
Cause I'm so used to this nightmare, That I'm frightened to awake,
I've got miles to go, and lots of promises to break,
Miles to go, and lots of promises to break.

It's a long shot,
But it's my only way out. It's a long shot, But it's my only way out.
It's a long shot, But it's my only way out. It's a long shot, But it's my only way out.
