​Lawless Times

This song is by John Mellencamp and appears on the album Plain Spoken (2014).

Well, you can't trust your neighbor
Husband or wife
Can't trust the police
With their guns or their nights
Look out for the creepers
Tappin' on your cell phone
You'd better lock your door
Even when you're at home

My, my, my
These are lawless times
My, my, my
These are lawless times

You can't trust the banks
The way that you used to do
I hope that Wall Street
Has been good to you
You can't trust the priest
You'd better watch your behind
Don't look too close at the government
Hard tellin' what you'll find

My, my, my
These are lawless times My, my, my
These are lawless times

Well, I don't trust myself
I don't trust you
Don't get too sick
It'll be the end of you
Don't expect a helping hand
And if you fall down
And if you want to steal this song
It can be easily loaded down

My, my, my
These are lawless times
My, my, my
These are lawless times

So you might ask yourself
Hey, what can I do?
I can't trust the future
What's been promised to you
Learn the rules hard and fast
Take care of yourself
And keep your eyes open
On everybody else

My, my, my
These are lawless times
My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times
My, my, my
These are lawless times
