Don’t Take Me Alive

Agents of the law.
Luckless pedestrian.
I know you’re out there with rage in your eyes and your megaphones.
Saying all is forgiven.
Mad dog surrender.
How can I answer?
A man of my mind can do anything.
I’m a bookkeeper’s son.
I don’t want to shoot no one.
Well I crossed my old man back in Oregon.
Don’t take me alive.
Got a case of dynamite.
I could hold out here all night.
Yes, I crossed my old man back in Oregon.
Don’t take me alive.
Can you hear the evil crowd?
The lies and the laughter.
I hear my inside.
The mechanized hum of another world.
Where no sun is shining.
No red light flashing.
Here in this darkness I know what I’ve done.
I know all at once who I am.
I’m a bookkeeper’s son.
I don’t want to shoot no one.
Well I crossed my old man back in Oregon.
Don’t take me alive.
Got a case of dynamite.
I could hold out here all night.
Yes I crossed my old man back in Oregon.
Don’t take me alive.

Don’t Take Me Alive (1976) by Steely Dan
