Blind in my one good eye My mind just won't reply Somethin' from way down south Kinda formin' a dust in my mouth Lookin' for a place to hide Lookin' for a space to die Rattlin' like an old tin can I'm cruisin' like a laundry van Hot 'n' cold fever down to my knees Wearin' out all of my rosary beads
Can't shake those shakes Can' t shake those shakes no more Can't shake those shakes Feels like I'm dyin' when I'm already dead
Date with my medicine man He got the remedies I understand Gotta find the price to pay Gonna send me on my way Gotta desperate need, gotta feed the fire I got a chemical love and a burned out desire
Can't shake those shakes Can't shake those shakes no more Can't shake those shakes, eels like I'm dyin' When I'm already dead, I'm dead.
Don't care for sentiment, don't even pay my rent Got enough bad habits to blame Got enough of them to keep me sane Losin' altitude in this neighborhood Can't break the fall, though I know that I should
