- LyricsHow come he don't come and PLP with me
Down at the meter no more?
How come he turn off the TV?
And he hang that sign on the door?
We call and we call
- LyricsI say this was no game of chicken, you were aiming your best friend
That you wear like a switchblade on a chain around your neck
I think you picked this up in Mexico from your dad
And it's daddy on the booze and there's a Brando on the ice
Now it's dean in the doorway
- LyricsThe most as you'll ever go
Is back where you used to know
If grown-ups could laugh this slow
Where as you watch the hour snow
Years may go by
- LyricsA long stretch of headlights bends into I-9
They tiptoe into truck stops
And sleepy diesel eyes
Volcanoes rumble in the taxi
An' glow in the dark
- LyricsTake a walk around midnight in the city
Young blood is hiding there somewhere
If you're looking for something to do
There's always something happening there
Like I & Bragger, we borrowed a coupe today
