You've got a gift to give, and
The shadows come and go, and
You've got a gift to get, oh

Rough trade
Rough trade
I'm not preaching, I just wanna tell you
Don't buy what these people will sell you
I'm not preaching, I just wanna tell you
I made a rough tradeadam with the citizen vein live on stage (kat club?)

Always gonna get 'em all right
No, never gonna get 'em this time
Always gonna get 'em

My daddy raised by the sinner
Told devil lies with dinner
Three meals, the ones to have holy crusade
Rough trade

You gotta be careful lyin'
While keeping it real cool, lyin'
You gotta be careful lyin', yeah
Rough trade

Never gonna follow the fold
And I'm always gonna travel this road
Never gonna follow

Only before it's done
Suck on a smokin' gun
Make like a hit and run
Woah oh oh oh
Only before it's done
Suck on a smokin' gun
Make like a hit and run
Woah oh oh oh
Only before it's done
Suck on a smokin' gun

My daddy raised by the sinner
Told devil lies with dinner
Three meals, the ones to have holy crusade
Rough trade

And I'm always gonna get 'em, alright
I'm always gonna get 'em that's right
I'm always gonna get 'em
