Will all your money buy you forgiveness
Keep you from sickness or keep you from cold?

Will all your money keep you from madness
Keep you from sadness when you're down in the hole?

Cause you'll be down in the gutter, you'll be bumming for cigarettes
Bumming for nylons in the American Zone

You'll be down in the hole, yeah, down in the hole
No escape from trouble, nowhere to go

Down in the gutter, begging for cigarettes
Begging forgiveness, all that you know

You're down in the hole after digging the trenches
Looking for cover and finding out there ain't nowhere, nowhere to go

None of your money will buy you forgiveness
None of your jewelry, none of your gold

Your black market cigarettes, your American nightclubs
I think I know where it (...)

Something for nothing, all of your friends gone
Something for nothing, that's all that you know

There's something down in the hole, down... down in the hole
There's something down... in the hole

Back to Emotional Rescue.
