lyrics

What they rescued from the fire sat out in the rain.
Gasoline makes rainbows as it all goes down the drain--
all goes down the drain.
The gas can we were playing with is hidden in the weeds.
Rescue dogs won't go there, 'cause it smells like evil deeds--
smells like evil deeds.

If I had a heart with nothing hidden in it,
I'd be a different sort of creature altogether.

The kids from two streets over stood and watched for half the night.
Their faces looked like devils in the jumping firelight--
jumping firelight.
When a body's got a devil stopping up his throat,
He can't speak to tell no one, but the rescue dogs, they know it--
rescue dogs, they know it.

If I had a heart with nothing hidden in it,
I'd be a different sort of creature altogether.
I'd be a good dog.
I'd be a rescue dog.
I'd be a good dog.
I'd be a rescue dog.

So remove yourself to safety with all necessary speed.
Leave the things you merely want and take the things you need--
take the things you need.
Bring the things you love and leave the things to which you're tied.
If you can't tell the difference, let the rescue dogs decide--
rescue dogs decide.

If I had a heart with nothing hidden in it,
I'd be a different sort of creature altogether.
I'd be a good dog.
I'd be a rescue dog.
I'd be a good dog.
I'd be a rescue dog.
