I climb in through the broken window,
walk out the golden door,
find out whoever lived here,
they've got what we came here for.

I watch the sky turn blood red.
Just try to live with this price on your head.
I try to moss this gentleman's game.
Gentlemen and criminals are the same.

'Cause we all walk backwards here.
We lost our sight and the end is near.
Just ride this train to the end of the line,
pray for deliverance, and watch for a sign.

Listen closely, my friend,
a train leaves here at a quarter to ten,
so take this money and change your name,
and go back from where you came.

A knock at the door comes unexpected.
Unwelcome guests are soon rejected.
We're one for all and all for one
falsely accused and on the run.

'Cause we all walk backwards here.
We lost our sight and the end is near.
Just ride this train to the end of the line,
pray for deliverance, and watch for a sign.

I watch this guy turn steel gray.
Enemies of the crown will have to pay.
Pay with their money and pay with their lives,
pay with their weapons and their silver knives.

'Cause we all walk backwards here.
We lost our sight and the end is near.
Just ride this train to the end of the line,
pray for deliverance, and watch for a sign.
