Blood On Your Hands

So strange how the whole thing started
A careless word and a what did you say
Never thought he would end up face down
Never thought I'd be runnin' away

But the method is clear for the branded
Nowhere to go, nowhere to hide
Holing somewhere in darkening alleys
Watching my own fear eat me inside

Pray as hard as you can
But you know there is no end in sight
Yeah, you won't escape
You've got blood on your hands tonight
Run as fast as you can
Your tomorrows have just taken flight
No, you'll never escape
You've got blood on your hands tonight, night, night

[solo]

I swore they never would catch me
But every rat must have its day
Slap the cuffs on, orange suit don
Boys in blue, yeah they take me away

Another stay in the Hotel de Gray Bar
But that's a joke and I'm telling you why
Before you know it I'm back on the street, yeah
In and out 'til the day that I die

Pray as hard as you can
But you know there is no end in sight
Yeah, you won't escape
You've got blood on your hands tonight
Run as fast as you can
Your tomorrows have just taken flight
No, you'll never escape
You've got blood on your hands tonight

[solo]

I took a shot, and now it's over
I turned away what's easy to see
Too late to go back
Too late to go back
Too late to go back
Too late for me

Run
As fast as I can
I'll never escape
No, never

And I've got blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Tonight, tonight
