I put this deal together
With everything I have left
Every last feather
I'd saved to make my nest

If you look in my basket
That's all of my eggs
If I drop it, I'll be lucky if they only break my legs
Drop it I'll be lucky if they only break my legs.

It's a long shot
But it's my only way out.
It's a long, long shot
But it's my only way out.

At my accountant's suggestion
I stole this car from a thief
The pills I'm ingesting
Are meant to bolster belief

That the string will stay strung
For at least a little while
That the chewing gum will stick it for at least another mile
Let the chewing gum stick it for at least another mile.

It's a long shot
But it's my only way out.
It's a long, long shot
But it's my only way out.

God bless the lies I told today
God keep them strong, don't let them fail
And God bless every God damn day
That they keep me out of that Belgian jail.

All them people with money
Say they don't pay it no mind
I wonder what they think about
All of the time

Cause I'm so used to this nightmare
That I'm frightened to awake
I've got miles to go, and lots of promises to break
Miles to go, and lots of promises to break.

It's a long shot, but it's my only way out
It's a long, long shot, but it's my only way out
It's a long shot, but it's my only way out
It's a long, long shot, but it's my only way out.
