All Over The Road
We've got the Cadillac, we're gonna drive right into the sun.
You're a tight piece of ass, but you know you're my only one.
We make the rules, and we both know what's got to be done.
So pull up your dress, I'm gonna show you how the west was won.
We've got tonight, we've got forever.
Let's get to work, because nobody does it better.
We're gonna swerve all around,
A-a-all over the road.
Burn Down Los Angeles
I come from the mountains, down to the water.
I come to drink from the dreams of your sons and daughters,
I come from the summer off of the rails,
With my hammer in hand about to hit it on the nail.
I'm gonna burn down Los Angeles, burn down Loas Angeles.
I come for revenge for my broken dreams.
I didn't come to wait tables or park limousines.
I come to get up from my hands and knees.
Face Of Light
If I can get through the day,
I'll have a date with the moon.
That's how I spend all my worthless time on the sand,
Thinking that my ship will be coming soon.
Look at these hands,
They've been in gloves for years.
That's how I spend all my worthless rounds in the ring,
Hoping that the other guy will disappear.
But you and your face of light.
I'm done wasting my time, I'm tired of picking off the fleas.
I've got a coffee can full of liquor store change that I've been counting
On my knees.
Get off the floor, look in the mirror.
Keep looking that good, some girl's gonna buy your dinner.
Got so much money, I know I owe.
Go downstairs and my car's getting' towed.
I've got to get mine, make it through the day.
Get mine, I've got bills to pay.
Staring at the sun, you know I've got my Papa's eyes.
Forty years at the mill, and two checks every month's got the poor man
He said, "Don't do what I've done, go out son and claim your prize."
"Stay out from under the hand of the man". That was his best advice.
I've got a gypsy heart,
Give me something's gonna make me stay.
I've got a gypsy heart.
Sun comes up on another day,
Under the lights, under the sheets.
After all our fights, that's where we both want to be.
You know that I've got my work, but you've got your needs,
Straight back into your arms is where this long road leads.
You are my only one,
And when times get hard I've got to make you see.
You are my only one,
And that's not even half of what you are to me.
Pressure And Time
Give me only what I need,
It doesn't take too much ro keep me satisfied.
Down to work for my money and earn my keep,
Hunger's got a way to tame a man's pride.
Can we build it up?
I know that we can,
Let's get to work every woman and man.
With pressure and time,
I said I'm gonna get mine.
I know that everybody wants somebody they can trust,
To pull their head right out of the sand.
I look forward and behind but I can't seem to find,
Someone to take the snakes our of my hand.
I climbed up the mountain and I killed the beast,
Just because they said it couldn't be done.
Come home to an empty house,
Got nothing to eat and I'm still on the run.
Who's gonna save me, who's gonna save me?
There's a message coming to me on my TV screen,
Every time I try to turn it off.
It tells me I'm inferior and incomplete,
And I'm a fool for beeing satisfied with what I've got.
White noise, white noise.
Carrying the poison to the girls and boys.
There's a message coming to me when my cellphone rings,
To remind me that I'm never alone.
Well your daddy's gone too fat this time,
And I combed my hair, been putting up front.
But his little girl's man is about to draw the line,
Nobody's gonna keep me from what I want.
She's my young love,
Well the train out of Gainesville leaves at nine,
And I shaved my face and sold my bike.
