Pour me another one; drink it down, drink it down
One for the road then get the hell out of this town
I'll be home soon any day now, I can touch it with my hands
But it just slips through the cracks like grains of sand

Love ain't enough if it don't get you through the day
So I'll make a new plan and I'll carry you away
There's a [holy dove] for both of us, it's safe here in the ground
You'll see all the other [haters] will take 'em down

Tell me another lie; lay down for me, lay down
Just like your pretty legs that you spread all through town
Do you take me for a simple man, you know word gets around
This smells of betrayal, I know it well

So I take the last town to the train I call home
Meet up with misery, the only friend I know
And I'll pull through my remaining days with codeine for the pain
And dream that it might some day go away

Told me that you figured the lord, but you asked me I'd hold the sword
When morning comes, you'll [take a run at it]
Well it's true, they say you never win, [with blaspheme is] a grateful sin
You did it on your own, but you stayed around to defend it

Pour me another one; drink it down, oh drink it down
I'm not a booze hound, but I'll order one more round
And I'll drink through my remaining days and slowly waste away
I know that you've already done the same
