Save Your Skin (Live)

From the Albums:
* No promises no debts
* 2nd Live

The pity and the pleasure and the guilt and the pain
The sun and the moon and the stars in the rain
It's all the same
Goin' back to zero
The other side a life
With gasoline and neon lights
Seeping though the night
On a coulour-slide
Hand that's holdin' a gun
It's the trigger – happy son
Another abnormality
A wolf among the sheep
It's the good time boy, girls toy
Takin' another chance
And there he goes
Do you think he knows
On and on he goes
Do you think it shows
Hold on he's coming back
Like a joker jumpin' outa the deck
Hit a lotta dust. Hit it hard
Just to prove my lord he can take a lot
Dig it now you still can
Get a smoke-screen and a rifle-man
Holy Christ look at the state he's in
Save your skin take my advice
And keep the kids inside
Save your skin now you can without an alibi
Save your skin take my advice
And leave the dogs outside
Cause here he comes
It's the demon man with the fire in his eyes
Checking out your lies one by one.
Soulkitchen's empty
Lotta contrast with last night
There's broken chairs and broken glasses
Everywhere in sight
Sunlight is blindin' my eyes
Minute he walks in
How ya been?
