come hell or high water
the former asks the latter how it starts
when the sun makes it's surrender
that's when we make our move across the earth
so i pulled myself together
and i threw my finest suit inside my car

the mark i left on this world was cigarette butts strewn across the floor
the mark i left upon the world was cigarette butts strewn across the floor

i cut my teeth on rock and roll
down surface streets and avenues of gold
the boys we know of Illinois
your voices are still ringing in my ears
the vultures that descended on
the undefended powders on the mirror

i will follow you
i will follow you
i will follow you wherever you will go

all i can say in defense
is maybe we should have taken the chance
i guess you were right

gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme some more
of those household drugs that we can afford to buy
the boys and girls relentlessly are screaming from their lungs, they go
gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme some more
of those household drugs that we can afford to buy
the boys and girls relentless me go b-line towards the exit streets,
for the company
of the ones we keep

all i can say in defense
is maybe we should have taken the chance
i guess you were right

all that we can defend
lately, all i can change with the wind
maybe it's time

maybe it's time
