Last American Exit

You know the reasons I can't conceal
You know I'm leaving, you obviously you know how I feel
It's not as easy as calling out your name when I'm down

It's not a matter for wrong or right
It ain't much better that drinking and looking to fight
You know I'm tired of crawling 'hind my name among the crowd

I'm on the last American exit to the Northland
I'm on the last American exit to my homeland
I'm on the last American exit to my last chance
They keep calling out my name, I shout it down

They've made you wonder and know for sure
You've made them hunger at night and then run for the door
You know you'll probably cry like Caesar's son when you're found

It's not your place, it's another town
Let's face it baby, I'm up and then baby, I'm down
You'll watch the border offer you fame, and watch you drown

I'm on the last American exit to the Northland
I'm on the last American exit to my homeland
I'm on the last American exit to my last chance
They keep calling out my name, I shout it down

Know our neighbors and know they'll take us
Know my city, it's just like theirs are hope I make it
I know I'm going to make it somehow

Know my savior, he knows you shakers
Know my pity, I'll see you later
I'd like to stay but I know it doesn't matter somehow

I'm on the last American exit to the Northland
I'm on the last American exit to my homeland
I'm on the last American exit to my last chance
They keep calling out my name, I shout it down

They keep callin' out my name
They keep callin' out my name
They keep callin' out my name, I shout it down
