The Street Giveth And The Street Taketh Away

Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer

[Verse]
Hey man
Gotta take a stand
So you think that you've been had
I'm here to bet ya
Street's gonna get ya
Well two out of three ain't bad
Hey man
It's gettin' out of hand
Cross your heart and hope to die
You got yours, and I got mine
I'm gonna get what's comin' to ya

[Chorus]
'Cause the street giveth and the street taketh away
Where there's no blind justice, no way

[Verse]
Hey man
Don't you understand
You can run but you can't hide
There ain't no life after death
So save your breath (you're gonna)
Be a rock 'n roll suicide
Hey man
Do you need a hand
But I ain't no blessing in disguise

Feel the agony
And the ecstacy
It's gonna burn right through ya

[Chorus]
Life's too short
So help yourself
'Cause I don't walk on water

[Chorus]

'Cause the street giveth and the street taketh away
'Cause the street giveth and the street taketh away
'Cause the street giveth and the street taketh away
'Cause the street giveth and the street taketh away (repeats out)
