Scatter Dogs 910228 - 3:21 - Recorded at the final show at The Fat Chance Bar & Grill in Albuquerque, NM on February 28, 1991. They were supposed to add an extra 4 bars at the end so that guest Jess Graham could have a little saxophone solo, but not everyone figured it out, so Debo's ending vocals come in at the wrong place.

LyricsEdit


In the body and in the brain
In the muscles and in the veins
(It's pumping)

Turning over the embers of a slow Tuesday night

Into doubt, into the flame
You get the fix into your brain
(It's pumping)

Wanting the things you want but have no reason to buy

End the pride and end the shame
End the love and end the pain

What creates the void is all that will fill it
After that nothing else even comes close

Don't you know

Scatter Dogs
Run dog run
Scatter Dogs
Are we having fun?
Scatter Dogs
What it is
No exit


In the body and in the brain
In the muscles and in the veins
(It's pumping)

Losing sense of proportion, empty spaces inside

Into doubt, into the flame
You get the fix into your brain
(It's pumping)

Erasing whatever might've passed for your bottom line

End the pride and end the shame
End the love and end the game

What creates the void is all that will fill it
After that nothing else even comes close

Don't you know

Scatter Dogs
Run dog run
Scatter Dogs
Are we having fun?
Scatter Dogs
What it is
Speed kills


In the body and in the brain
In the muscles and in the veins
(It's pumping)

Running to hasten time that passes into the gone

Into doubt, into the flame
You get the fix into your brain
(It's pumping)

Hiding behind the talk of dreams that you'll never try

End the pride and end the shame
End the love and end the game

What creates the void is all that will fill it
After that nothing else even comes close

Don't you know

Scatter Dogs
Run dog run
Scatter Dogs
Are we having fun?
Scatter Dogs
What it is
No exit

What creates the void...
