"The Highland Street Incident" as written by and Todd Daniel Snider....
Some guy said to some other guy behind closed doors
I don't even know how long I've been awake anymore
But I know what we're out of and you do too
Look around we're down to nothing but me and you
We sold everything we stole and everything we had
It's not that bad though
It's not that bad

We will be buying our shit back when your cousin gets out
That's only going to be a couple weeks from now
You know what I'm thinking cause you're thinking it too
It was harder to imagine than it was to do
In spite of all of your worry last night went okay
That man just threw his money up and ran away

Did we get arrested? No we did not
We didn't shoot anyone, we didn't get shot
We didn't hurt anyone, at least not a lot
And we got what we wanted
We got what we wanted

You're right I could kill somebody, I don't care
But that's not the way it's gonna go tonight I swear
We'll just walk on up to Highland Street behind the bar
In the back through the alley where they park the cars
It will go down just as easy as it did last night
We'll be back here in an hour hidin' out of sight

Did we get arrested? No we did not
We didn't shoot anyone, we didn't get shot
We didn't hurt anyone, at least not a lot
And we got what we wanted

Hey stand right here behind me buddy this is the place
Hold this blue bandanna up to cover your face
Yes this is loaded but it's only for security
I won't be shootin' anyone that isn't shootin' at me
Shut up I think I hear somebody coming man
Shut up I think shh

Run man run
Run man run
We'll get out of this together when your cousin gets out
That is only gonna be a couple weeks from now
Run man run
