You know you're livin' a lie when you just can't win
Pulling in first prize ain't gonna give you a break
You know I'm kickin' back, I had a broken wing
Me and my shadow are the next best thing
I need someone
You know it might take more than you give to me

Are you gun-shy, are you listening?
What we got here is dead reckoning

And take me in for the night in the right time zone
We'll do what you like, make a left turn home
I put out the light, you're turnin' way too red
No stop sign straight up ahead

You need so much
So much sympathy
That's more than I can say
You know it's not too late

Are you gun-shy, are you listening?
What we got here is dead reckoning
And if it feels good, we'll do it again
See your way clear, dead reckoning

Tell me why, tell me why
Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Are you listening?

You mean so much
So much to me
That's more than I can say
You know it's not too late

Are you gun-shy, are you listening?
What we got here is dead reckoning
And if it feels good, we'll do it again
See your way clear, dead reckoning, yeah
What we got here is dead reckoning
What we got here is dead reckoning
