Shakedown 1979, cool kids never had the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With head lights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess

Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin dues down to see

That we don't even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made, I know you better than you fake it

To see that we don't care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess

Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of sound
As you can see there's no one around
