  • She wakes up wet in a shower stall
    Sewn together, bangs her head on a wall
    She goes hitchhiking at 3 a.m.
    Bruised and bloody, does it over again

    She’s got a deathwish
    In a self-destructive blitz

    He’s got a car that goes real fast
    He’s got a life but it won’t last
    Doesn’t even look disturbed
    When his chevy takes out the curb

    He’s got a deathwish
    Coming home is a hit or a miss
    He’s got a deathwish
    In a self-destructive blitz

    Passed out drunk on the living room floor
    Gets up and pukes so she can drink some more
    And evening’s party out in the fringe
    Turns into a two-week binge

    She’s got a deathwish
    Coming home is a hit or a miss
    She’s got a deathwish
    In a self-destructive blitz
