Promotional single for upcoming new album Skin and Teeth

lyrics

I'm king of the hill
Sleek and fat
Walk around in a dead man's hat
I won my watch and chain
Counting cards in a poker game
I'm a dog, I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steal is so much sweeter

There's a bullet with my name on
It's the game that I play
To beat that bullet to my grave
How many times can I cheat that hangman's noose?
Sleep with one eye open
There's never a truce
Cause I'm a dog, I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steal is so much sweeter

So you think you can beat me girl?
C'mon show me your moxie
Give it a whirl
When the odds are against me I come out winnin'
Spend my time a drinkin' and a sinnin'
I'm a dog, I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steal is so much sweeter
