Don’t Take Me Alive
Steely Dan Don’t Take Me Alive text lyrics letra paroles
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.
