This is it

Breaking up or breaking through
Breaking something's all we ever do
Shoot straight, travel far
Stone crazy's all we ever are

But I don't care for lies
And I won't tell you twice
Because when all else fails
Dead men tell no tales, oh

Shooting up away and back
A bit of guts is all that you lack
Far behind the stable door
I know you've met that horse before

But I don't care for sky
And this sure ain't no lie
At the end of all tracks and trails
Dead men tell no tales, c'mon

You used to be my friend
But that friendship's coming to an end
My meaning must be clear
You know pity is all that you hear

But if you're doing smack
You won't be coming back
I ain't the one to make your bail
Dead men tell no tales, oh

Tell no tales
Tell no tales
Tell no tales
Tell no tales

Songwriters
Clarke, Edward Alan / Kilmister, Ian / Taylor, Philip John
