He slipped his pills in your mouth
His wine washed it all down in that unholy desert town
And when you fell to the ground the strangers crowded around
And your ears entertained the muffled sounds

Of stilletoed heels
And the DJ's appeals to the sedated Las Vegas crowd
But that's the price that you pay when you resign your fate
To the medecine man that you found

But you don't seek death
You just like to court it by night
So that when the morning comes it's just you and the sun
And you've escaped with your life one more time

The night you mixed the medecines like a lab experiment
In the cellars of your anatomy
Did you ever stop to think of anyone or anything
The calls you claim you couldn't see?

And it's so often that you spoke of how this life's a fucking joke
And I'll never say I disagree
But when you take it too far
And you burn out like a star
You know you could've fell on me

Because you never sought death
You just liked to court it by night
So that when the morning comes it's just you and the sun
And everything's alright, alright

Everything's alright...
