"Last Plane Out" as written by and Guy/gilbert Pratt....
Greetings from Sodom
How we wish you were here
The weather's getting warmer
Now that the trees are all cleared
There's no time for a conscience
And we recognize no crime
Yeah we got dogs and Valvoline
It's a pretty damn good time

[Chorus]
Men of reason, not of rhyme
Keep the spoils and share your crime
Goodman, Badman, lost without
A hope for passage on the last plane out

There was one repressed do gooder
And a few who still believed
Yes I think there were five good men here yesterday
But they were asked to leave
So we've kept the good old vices
And labored to invent a few
With cake in vulgar surplus
We can have it and eat it, too

[Chorus]

Men of reason, hide your face
Walking backwards, plays his ace
Goodman, Badman, lost without
A hope for passage on the last plane out

Here's a concept you can't dance to
An idea you cannot hum
There may not be an empty seat
When all is said and done
I'm not the guy who sings the hymns
No bleeding heart to mend
But I like the part where Icarus
Hijacks the little red hen

Someone said the Big Man
May be joining us soon
But I never was the type to hang
With the harbingers of doom
And this party is addictive
Self-destructive, no doubt
So I hope that someone saves a seat for me
On the last plane out

[Chorus]

    My OpinionThis time around, Sodom is The West.
    We have it all..."we've got dogs and Valvoline, it's a pretty damned good time"
    "with cake in vulgar surplus, we can have it and eat it, too".
    And we are looking out for #1..."there was one repressed do-gooder, and a few who still believed, yes I think there were 5 good men here yesterday...but they were asked to leave".
    Like all such societies in history, they eventually collapse under their own weight.
