"Throw Me To The Dogs" as written by and Aldred....
Lost my heart in a cheap hotel at the lawless end of town
And my tears to the jukebox that was bolted to the ground
With grey in my beard and the devil behind my ribs
I lingered at your door listened to you make love to him

Voices were raised and you started to fight
He swung out hitting you with a right
Throw me to the dogs tonight
Love and life and beauty survive all of the shit
They throw at us
They throw at us

We drank vodka from teacups in the shade of an old lime tree
Toasted lines around your eyes that ran deeper than me
You sang me a song about a teenage suicide
I quarried your soul with those cold cold hands of mine

Blink and you miss it but I swear I caught sight
of your intent as your turned out the light
Throw me to the dogs tonight
Love and life and beauty survive all of the shit
They throw at us

There's something sparkled in the ghettos late at night
It climbed through the window and it gave the neighbourhood light
A cut-throat rose like a kid from the snow
A bad moon grumbled but I know where to go
Throw us to the dogs we'll show
love and life and beauty survive all of the shit
they throw at us
they throw at us

Got to keep on, got to keep on moving
You got to keep on moving
You got to keep on moving
You got to keep on moving
You got to keep on moving
