I walked in the bank, The black leather bag tucked tight beneath my arm When I pulled the .45, I looked into the banker's eyes "Don't you dare pull that alarm!" I screamed, "Hit the floor!" A woman screamed, "Please help me, Lord!" And I thought about you, dear. If you knew I lost my job And gambled what we'd saved and lost, Would you understand all of my fears? For once in my life can I do this one thing right? Felt the pressure tight, A weakened man, a weekend heist A Saturday I'd not forget. Uncle Sam, this money jam you put me in Took a human life to pay the debt. I didn't hear the guards outside, I heard a scream, I turned, surprised Felt the smoking pistol in my grip. The gun went off in the soft yellow tie That hung beside the banker's heart Inside the banker's chest. Lived such a short life I hope he'll be alright. For once in my life, I feel so damn alive!
