The story of a steel claw

It's just a television wonderland
Just one more fairytale about a rich bitch
Lying by the swimming pool
Life is so cool
Easy living when you make the rules
Last Friday was the first time and only
It took about a half a minute on the stairway, it was child's play
The odds turn out even when you give up believing in the

Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board, you'll find the lock is on the door
Well, I say no way, no way
Don't try get out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right, who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see-saw, a long hot battle with the cold law
Is what you get by messing with the steel claw

The politicians have forgotten this place except for
Flying visits in a black Mercedes on election time
Cross the line, everybody runs to catch the pantomime
If you could see what's going on 'round here
So many people hanging on the the edge
Crying out for revolution, retribution
The odds come out even when you give up believing in the

Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board, you'll find the lock is on the door
Well, I say no way, no way
Don't try get out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right, who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see-saw, a long hot battle with the cold law
Is what you get by messing with the steel claw

Jump back out

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy
Sometimes I do a line, make me laugh
Make me wanna take a joyride on the high tide
Sometimes I'm contemplating suicide
Meanwhile Eddy is on the west coast
I know he's making out with some sweet senorita up in Frisco
You and I know
The odds come out even when you give up believing in the

Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board, you'll find the lock is on the door
Well, I say no way, no way
Don't try get out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right, who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see-saw, a long hot battle with the cold law
Is what you get by messing with the steel claw

Hot, hot battle

It's a cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board, you'll find the lock is on the door
Well, I say no way, no way
The odds come out even
When you give up believing in the
In a cold law, steel claw
Well I, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
