Took a big trip
With your old band
To your homeland
For the wrong man

Making big plans
For your own sake
Hope they don't bend
Hope they don't break

Took a tip from a rodeo show
Get a grip or you're gonna get thrown
Take your aim when you take a shot
For the man under you will take everything you got

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren't looking
Keep a smile but you burn it hot
It's a mad, mad, world

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren't looking
Fix a smile but you burn it hot
It's a mad, mad, world

    Seems like a song about a rock star trying to return to his former life. Unfortunately drugs aren't the way to revive his former life. He needs drugs to try a comeback as he tries to hide his old habit from everyone, but he needs them, but the world has changed and soon finds himself still a drugged up has been.
