    Heavy Fuel (disc 2)

There's gotta be a record of you someplace 
You gotta be on somebody's books 
The lowdown - a picture of your face 
Your injured looks 
The sacred and profane 
The pleasure and the pain 
Somewhere your fingerprints remain concrete 
And it's your face I'm looking for on every street 

A ladykiller - regulation tattoo 
Silver spurs on his heels 
Says - what can I tell you, as I'm standing next to you 
She threw herself under my wheels 
Oh it's a dangerous road 
And a hazardous load 
And the fireworks over liberty explode in the heat 
And it's your face I'm looking for on every street 

A three-chord symphony crashes into space 
The moon is hanging upside down 
I don't know why it is I'm still on the case 
It's a ravenous town 
And you still refuse to be traced 
Seems to me such a waste 
And every victory has a taste that's bittersweet 
And it's your face I'm looking for on every street
