​We Won't Go

This song is by This Way to the Egress and appears on the album Great Balancing Act (2015).

Found a sawbuck on the ground, picked it up dear.
Spent it wisely on a whiskey, maybe four? (Maybe five)
Now I'm face down in the gutter, I knew I never cut her.
Cops are breaking down my front door.

Packed my bags to leave town in a hurry,
Filled my suitcase with spirits and a scarf.
I end up here with you, drinking in the saloon,
Tie that scarf around my eyes for blind man's bluff.

No, no, no, I tell you we won't go,
Lets drink tonight and we become the curse.
No, no, no, we've got no place to go,
Down the hatch for better or for worse.

Everything I learned I got a scar for,
Plus my father's father's brother's neighbor's wife.
When I was just a youngin', I had low expectations,
But my lucky knife would carve out much respect.

Funny thing when life it creeps up on ya,
Crows feet that keep walking on your face.
The mirror'll never show it, ya never really know it,
Till you're on a slab with rigor in a grave.

No, no, no, I tell you we won't go,
Lets drink tonight and we become the curse.
No, no, no, we've got no place to go,
Down the hatch for better or for worse.

Staring through the kitchen, dancing on the table.
Skillets fallin' off the wall, confettis blowin' up the hall.
Laughin' at the sunrise, moon will never take it.
Our future is uncertain, so we fake it till we make it.
Spirits getting drunk now, were punching in the dark now.
Fevers growin' rotten, tonight will be forgotten.
Were running through the mazes and all we've got to say is
Better pour another drink 'cause you've got no time for thinking.

(x4)
No, no, no, I tell you we won't go,
Lets drink tonight and we become the curse.
No, no, no, we've got no place to go,
Down the hatch for better or for worse.
