I went to brothels
     And gambling dens
     I played the cards
    Then I played the men

I went to dark alleys
    And secret meetings
    I drank the high
    I bathed the sins

I went to a world of ghosts
    To smoke my lungs out
    To taint this body
    To be loose and lost

I went and went
    A million and ten
    To escape from the vice
    Of remembering you again
