You thought, "you won't."
In the nighttime you sold cheap feelings we'd come to own

It's a cold sweat you catch
An old itch to scratch
Always comes back before long

I wish it on a lung now
Say it till it dies
Back where it's begun
Are we staring down the gun?

Wash out that stem in your old beaten head
The bastard you send back for more

It's a cold sweat you catch
An old itch to scratch
Always comes back before long

I wish it on a lung now
Say it till it dies
Back where it's begun
Are we staring down the gun?
Waiting on the light now
Back where we begun
Wishing it would die now

All of the time is torture
The river is shallow tonight
Are we gonna run it dry
You're looking over your shoulder
And I'm staring in your eye
Am I gonna know it's time

You thought, "you won't."
In the nighttime you sold cheap feelings we'd come to own

I wish it on a lung now
Say it till it dies
Back where it's begun
Are we staring down the gun?
Waiting on the light now
Back where we've begun
Wishing it was time now

Are we staring down the gun?
