You Just Gotta Cut and Run



anybody seen my boy
anybody seen my black and white
he started howling two days ago
now he's out of sight

anybody seen my baby
anybody seen my girl
she went to buy some groceries
i think she left this world

why is everybody leaving?
why do we have to go
ain't no use in believing
sometimes you gotta know
you just gotta cut and run

you gotta cut and run
run like the dickens
you just gotta run
you just gotta run
beat it on out of town
you gotta run
run like the dickens
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run

i saw an old man crying
his face was wino red
his eyes like busted mirrors
his wife was oh-so dead

i heard that there are tigers
who hide in dreams at night
they are prowling there forever
until the time is right
until the time is right

you gotta cut and run
run like the dickens
you just gotta run
you just gotta run
beat it on out of town
you gotta run
run like the dickens
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run

everybody is the same
everybody's different
deciphering the clues they find
forgetting all the hints

the sun is burning everything
that starts to get too close
come on baby, climb inside my heart
we can practice being ghosts

why is everybody leaving?
why do we have to go
ain't no use in believing
sometimes you gotta know
you just gotta cut and run

you gotta cut and run
run like the dickens
you just gotta run
you just gotta run
beat it on out of town
you gotta run
run like the dickens
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
you just gotta cut and run
