Sugar City

Sugar City on a drunk 
Make or break that's for sure 
Chips are down, life in a trunk 
Sugar City be the cure 

Rolling out of Sugar City 
Off my feet on Bullet Street 
Gamblin' joints showed no pity 
Personal best beat retreat 

I took them on and I lost 
Now it's time to avoid the cost 
It's a hard road to walk I know 
With a hat-full of rain and snow 
With a hat-full of rain 

Drive through wedding lasted one night 
She's stone cold gone away 
I couldn't face her, it's alright 
In this hard hat area today 

I took them on and I lost 
Now it's time to avoid the cost 
It's a hard road to walk I know 
With a hat-full of rain and snow 
With a hat-full of rain 

Sugar City sucks the soul 
I wish I'd never came 
Dose of salts cleans you whole 
Wish I could recall my name 

I took them on and I lost 
Now it's time to avoid the cost 
It's a hard road to walk I know 
With a hat-full of rain and snow 
With a hat-full of rain 

I took them on and I lost 
Now it's time to avoid the cost 
It's a hard road to walk I know 
With a hat-full of rain and snow 
With a hat-full of rain and snow
