Oh yeah. Thank God. I could use a companion
To hell or bust. I could use a companion

They haven't found her body, but they're onto me
I'm sort to drag you I, but I had no choice
I said I was sorry so stop crying
The authority lives for the thrill of chase
But they'll never catch me
Cheer up honey, don't cry. You don't get to cry
I cleaned up after myself. I tied up my loose ends. Tied 'em up.

With a full tank we can make it to the border
Where I'll change my name and they'll crown me king
I may be sick.
Authority lives for the thrill of the chase but, they'll never catch me

    General CommentThis song is about something that happened about an hour from my house, san marcos, texas. After a show fear heard about a 'haunted house' and decided to go. They got arrested. I hear they tried to get out by saying they were a church band or something. I don't know the whole story. The place is a big ass old house that used to be a morgue and has alot of broken windows. My friends got arrested there.

    General Commenthmm this is a tough call i think this song is directed more twords pres. bush. reason being theres that pause in the song and a sound clip of bush saying something like "Theres an old saying in texas, If you fool me one shame on you...if u fool me one u won't fool me again" And ya know bush is from texas idk. I like bush so its not really my cup of tea but awesome song awesome band. I saw them live with chariot and underoath and they were just as good if not better than chariot but i'm sry underoaht was flippen incredible! But these guys can "rock out" pretty hard the cd is good to go buy it

    General Commentsorry, i didnt mean to say bush, i was reading the above comment and mixed up my typing. i think its probably a state trooper talking, that sort of thing "the authority lives for the thrill of the chase but they'll never catch me"

    General CommentIt's not "obviously" Bush. This is not a political song, and you're pretty simple minded if you labeled it was one for that ONE sound clip. Many people have deep Texas accents. It could, in fact be a state trooper, or some sort of law officer, or maybe even a local that stated that line.

    And the lyrics are in no way even in any relation to politics.
