"Anything Goes" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler and Christopher Weber....
Normally this time of night you wouldn't find me here
I'd be reaching for a good night kiss instead of one more beer
I'd never take a second look at the blonde across the bar
Much less invite her over and let things go this far

[Chorus]
But anything goes when everything's gone
You ain't around to give a damn whether I do right or wrong
So bring it on, anything goes when everything's gone

Another morning after a crazy night before
I'm searching for my blue jeans on a stranger's bedroom floor
Well, shouldn't I feel guilty well I don't feel a thing
I'd wake her up and say goodbye, but I can't recall her name

[Chorus]

If you'd lifted a single thread for me to hold on too
I'd have one good reason not to do the things I do

[Chorus]

Anything goes
Anything goes when everything's gone

    Song MeaningI think the meaning is pretty clear here.
    He got left by his wife/girlfriend and he now hangs around in bars at night, having sex with strangers.
    Because it doesn't matter when you have nothing else.
    It mocks the real emptiness of many people's lifestyle. Although they have beer and sex, which many men who don't get those want, they're actually only doing it because they have nothing else.
