Desperados – Rattlesnake Shake lyrics

A rattlesnake shake
A rattlesnake shake
Pursued like a wounded deer
Branded inhumanity
Crime controlled
Wild instinct to stay alive
The morning that will never die
Fire down below
Deep in my mind
Can't be denied
Out of sight

Like a rattlesnake shake
A rattlesnake shake
Like a rattlesnake shake
A rattlesnake shake

When they set my skin on fire
Last resort desire
I can't resist
The man they couldn't catch
Is the man they couldn't hang
They'll spiteful kissed
Balanced on the edge
Inseminated death
Skeletons left behind

By a rattlesnake shake
A rattlesnake shake
By a rattlesnake shake
A rattlesnake shake

Blessed by the gods
Which path will he take
Visions of freedom
That never awake
They don't shoot him down
And they don't hang him up
But the rattlesnake's bite
And the sun burning black
A rattlesnake shake...
