lyrics

Eat when we're hungry drink when we're dry
If this whiskey don't kill us we live 'til we die

Eat when we're hungry drink when we're dry
If this whiskey don't kill us we live 'til we die
Walk over water sink like a stone
You live without love then you die all alone

Run for cover cause we're coming for you
Business men if your monkey suit
We got blues like sandpaper
Rocksteady like dirt

And we gonna
Shake you down
Shake you down
And we gonna
Take you down alright

And out in the street
They're vending soul out the speakers and moving to the beat
Here's hoping somebody can find a way outta here

There's people out there
Singing tunes you can here up in the stratosphere
Singing if only I can make it through the night
Keep that candle burning bright

Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
Shape it well tonight
As well as you are able

Shake you down
Shake you down
Take you down
Take you down

Eat when we're hungry drink when we're dry
If this whiskey don't kill us we live 'til we die
Walk over water sink like a stone
You live without love then you die all alone
