lyrics

One dark night as I lay half-asleep in my bed
Got a strange phone call from the world of the legally dead
I was awake enough to hear the rattling chains
And through the hisses and moans, this is what I heard him say

"Get out of town, ride out as fast as you came
Don't pack a bag and tell all the rest to do the same”
Not sure what the night will bring
All I know is one thing
In this world nothing can be certain... but death and taxes


Hung up the phone and tried my best to get back to sleep
Figured it was just a prank call from some psychopathic creep
But all my dreams were nightmares, kept me awake
You reap what you sow, gotta pay what you owe

"Get out of town, ride out as fast as you came
Don't pack a bag and tell all the rest to do the same”
Not sure what the night will bring
All I know is one thing
In this world nothing can be certain... but death and taxes


Jumped out of bed swore I heard someone screaming my name
Looked at my hands and all I saw were blood stains
I was awake enough to hear the voices and the rattling chains
And through the whispers and sighs, this is what I heard them say...

“Get out of town, ride out as fast as you came
Don't make a sound and don't tell no one your name”
Not sure what the night will bring
All I know is one thing
In this world nothing can be certain... but death and taxes
