Lyrics:

Got enough shampoo for one more shower
But the toothpaste is gone
I ain't got no coins for the laundery
I must be doin somethin wrong
Well I spent my last ten dollars
On a pack of cigarettes
When you're running on empty
It's surprising how far you can get

When you're running on empty
Just looking to be filled up
But it wasn't in the whiskey, it wasn't in God, and it wasn't in love....

How can I be righteous, when they tell me God is dead
And the reason that I'm living, is supposed to come from my own head
And who will give me answers, to what is wrong and what is right
Who should I pray to, when I lay my head down at night

Cause I'm running on empty
Just looking to be filled up
But it wasn't in the whiskey, it wasn't in God and it wasn't in love....
No it wasn't in the whiskey, it wasn't in God and it wasn't in love.
