Lyrics

Empty Wallet and Shoestrings
============================
They gave me back my shoestrings
and my empty wallet
in a bag
Shook my hand
Told me
After all
I wasn't really all that bad

And
Then they
Patted me on the shoulder
Put me on the street
On a
Night that couldn't get much colder
And Now theres only one person
In the world
I want to meet

Yeah
When I did just what I did
With that gun Under a chain lightning sky
22 years ago When I was just a kid
And had that evil in my eye

So I Took my shoestrings and
my state issue
Told myself
I had no regrets
But
Now
My clothes are all
ill fitting
Like my attitude
And my
bent up cigarettes

When I did just what I did
With that gun under a chain lightning sky
22 years ago when I was just a Kid
And had that evil in my eye

Yeah
Now all the doors are locked down tight
And good people they've all gone to bed
But those ghosts come alive out of the shadows
And my feelings are all dead

So
I Stopped in a Tattoo parlor
to see
The buzz saw man
He took one look at me
And he frowned
then carved REVENGE
In my left hand

And now
My mind is like those shoestrings
Twisted
In ways Ive never known
Garbage can
Coyotes
in the distance
Howling bout how
They
Feel alone

Yeah
When I did
Just what I did
With that gun
Under a chain lightning sky
22 years ago when I was just a kid
With that evil in my eye
