lyrics

this place is nothing but rubble
the tired face with the stubble forever turned away
she's only looking for trouble
but i've had more than a couple and it's the usual display

the money's there, i could take it and run

so it's straight down to business
but there's always a witness - depends who you know
and outside in the city it's looking even less pretty after the money goes

but underneath god's burning sun someone here must know how things are supposed to be done
i'm just sitting at the ready while the engines run

she went away in the winter
but i try not to remember whatever else she said
she's got a house up in dollar
i made a promise to call her but then i never did

but underneath god's burning sun someone down here knows how things are supposed to be done
i'm just sitting at the ready while the engines run

there's the moon at the finish
but where's the rest of the promise we lost along the way
there's the love that i wasted
but where's the blood that i tasted on that fatal day

and where's the faith i started from
where's the man who knew how things were supposed to be done
underneath god's burning sun someone down here knows how things are supposed to be done
underneath god's burning sun someone here must know...
