Ventilator Blues
When your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake
Heart is bursting and you butt's gonna break
Your woman's cussing, you can hear her scream
You feel like murder in the first degree

Ain't nobody slowing down no way
Ev'rybody's stepping on their accelerator
Don't matter where you are
Ev'rybody's gonna need a ventilator

When you're trapped and circled with no second chances
Your code of living is your gun in hand
We can't be browed by beating, we can't be cowed by words
Messed by cheating, ain't gonna ever learn

Ev'rybody walking 'round
Ev'rybody trying to step on their Creator
Don't matter where you are, ev'rybody, ev'rybody gonna
Need some kind of ventilator, some kind of ventilator

What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do?
What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do?
Gonna fight it, gonna fight it?

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor
