“Hounds Loose”
Lyrics by Dan Patlansky

There’s a price to pay, when he comes your way
For selling your own soul
Just a little deeper, call the reaper

You’re digging your own grave
One more Whiskey, don’t get tipsy
It’s too late to be brave
I comb my hair, and eat my last meal
There’s no time to shave

The devils in town, the devils in town
And he’s here to stay

Let the hounds loose, hounds loose
Get yourself together, I was born with bad Ju-Ju
Hounds loose, hounds loose
Get yourself together, I was born with bad Ju-Ju

You gotta pray, that on judgement day
He don’t come around too soon
Can’t hide away, in the light of day
Or take refuge with the moon
Just hold on tight, try not to fight
As he stakes his rightful claim

He always gets what he comes here for
Never forgets a name
