[rev. May 29, 2010]

A silver lamp-lit sign flashes in the rain
Inside the taxi that takes me to my plane
And the party's over with a head that throbs
It's none of my business you see, I'm just doing my job

I'm gonna track you down
  [L](I lived by the sword, died by the sword)
  [R](He obeys the law, where the stuff is sold)
I'm gonna catch your scent
  [L](And our hand's in the war, in the rental hall)
  [R](What can you afford, and the costs have soared)
I'm gonna spring your trap
  [L](And the costs have soared, what can you afford)
  [R](In the rental hall, and our hand's in the war)
I'm gonna track you down
  [L](Where the stuff is sold, he obeys the law)
  [R](Died by the sword, lived by the sword)

Let's see...
You were last seen leaving Tony's Bar with a dark suspicious man
And some intoxicated woman 'cause your wife doesn't understand
A carnation in your buttonhole, greed inside your veins
Smooth threats and promises, hotel rooms and chains

I'm gonna track you down
  [L](Lived by the sword, died by the sword)
  [R](He obeys the law, where the stuff is sold)
I'm gonna catch your scent
  [L](And our hand's in the war, in the rental hall)
  [R](What can you afford, and the costs have soared)
I'm gonna spring your trap
  [L](And the costs have soared, what can you afford)
  [R](In the rental hall, and our hand's in the war)
I'm gonna track you down
  [L](Where the stuff is sold, he obeys the law)
  [R](Died by the sword, lived by the sword)

Closing in like snow and rust
Leave you high and dry
First you're gonna simmer
Then you're gonna fry

I'm gonna track you down
  [L](Lived by the sword, died by the sword)
  [R](He obeys the law, where the stuff is sold)
I'm gonna catch your scent
  [L](And our hand's in the war, in the rental hall)
  [R](What can you afford, and the costs have soared)
I'm gonna spring my trap
  [L](And the costs have soared, what can you afford)
  [R](In the rental hall, and our hand's in the war)
I'm gonna track you down
  [L](Where the stuff is sold, he obeys the law)
  [R](Died by the sword, lived by the sword)
