  • We took the highway till the road went black
    We marked Truth Or Consequences on our map
    A voice drifted up from the radio
    We saw the voice from long ago

    [Chorus]
    Who'll be the last to die for a mistake
    The last to die for a mistake
    Whose blood will spill, whose heart will break
    Who'll be the last to die for a mistake

    The kids asleep in the backseat
    We're just countin' the miles you and me
    We don't measure the blood we've drawn anymore
    We just stack the bodies outside the door

    The wise men were all fools
    What to do

    The sun sets in flames as the city burns
    Another day gone down as the night turns
    And I hold you here in my heart
    As things fall apart

    A downtown window flushed with light
    Faces of the dead at five (faces of the dead at five)
    A martyr's silent eyes
    Petition the drivers as we pass by

    Who'll be the last to die for a mistake
    The last to die for a mistake
    Whose blood will spill, whose heart will break
    Who'll be the last to die

    Who'll be the last to die for a mistake
    The last to die for a mistake
    Darlin' your tyrants and kings form the same fate
    Strung up at your city gates
    And you're the last to die for a mistake Writer/s: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
