Live 07 Oct 2005 version

Well I'm riding down Kingsley figuring I'll get a drink
Turn the radio way up loud so I don't have to think
And I take her to the floor looking for a moment when the world seems right
And I tear into the guts of something in the night

You're born with nothing and you're better off that way
Soon as you got something they send someone to try and take it away
Well you can ride this road 'til dawn without another human being in sight
Yeah just kids wasted on something in the night

Well, nothing is forgotten or forgiven, when it's your last time around
And I got stuff running 'round my head that I can't forget and I can't live down

Well, we found the things we loved, they were crushed and dying in the dirt
We tried to pick up the pieces, and get away without getting hurt
Yeah, but they caught us at the state line, and burned our cars in one last fight
And left us running burned and blind chasing something in the night
