    What is the awesome song being played at the end of October 2nd CBS Vegas episode?

    I caught the words… “Somedays I try hard… to watch my mouth… to say the right things… but the wrong just slips right out.”

    It finishes up with the words… “Oh… I’m gettin’ used to walking on a thin line”

    Q: Is it available anywhere?
