"White Lexus" as written by and Mike Doughty....
Please show me how to live.
Please show me how to have a day.
I don't want to wake up now.
Why do I have to wake up, anyway?

Like a soap star in anguish, shrill but bland,
When your white Lexus comes
Around
The way
Idling in the long driveway

Try to feel nothing on command
When your white Lexus comes
The thrill
Be damned

I forgive the world right now.
Still I play the chump's role every time.
My world's the surface of the moon.
My heart's down in a diamond mine.

Like the black stars of Memphis, moaning on,
When your white Lexus comes
To drive
Me out
Drive me to the edge of town

Try to feel nothing on command
When your white Lexus comes
The thrill
Be damned
Damn it to the last damned man.

    General CommentI think this song is rather sarcastic, a nice little fuck you to all those people who think that enjoying life and feeling the excitement of living requires money...and a white lexus.
