Leaving this town headed south bound
The car full of narcotics, some cheap cocaine
And we cut our losses in North Dakota
Where it's true they name their streets all after thieves
We kept our eyes locked on the border
And one hand on the wheel
And kept us to the right
We never got no further south bound
We left those wheels to spin us right through the night
And we set fire to both our paths

Following lights you'd left to guide us soon became a bore
We lit those flames and made our own
And left those lights to burn behind us
In the dark I finally see that I'm alone

We won't heed no call to arms
And we won't heed no call at all

Threw ourselves into the water
Just trying to keep our bodies warm
Honey we've been here before
We made mistakes just as our fathers before us
Trying to drag our legs behind us back to shore
