[chorus]
Nightclubs and one night stands
Play a show then I'm off again
This is my life, living on the highway
It's all I've ever done. All I've ever known
Just wanna play one more show
And make some music with my friends

Playing working class culture, see the bleak side of the American experience
Scatter in the street and show me what you got
This is no set of ideals, this is flesh and blood

[chorus]

Opinions are hard to put in prison
I'll tell the truth that won't be told
Uprising and rebellion
Social change with flesh and blood

[chorus]

    My InterpretationCorrect lyrics straight from the booklet:


    Night clubs and one night stands
    Play a show then I'm off again
    This is my life living on the highway
    It's all I've ever done, all I've ever known
    Just wanna play one more show
    Make some music with my friends

    I am working class culture
    Seen the bleak side of the American experience
    Scatter in the streets and show me what you got
    This is no set of ideas, this is flesh and blood

    Opinions are hard to put in prison
    I tell the truth that won't be told
    Uprising and rebellion
    Social change with flesh and blood

    General Comment“This was the only song that we recorded that we felt would fit at the end of the record. It’s the best way to explain every individual in the band and it sums up the pure pleasure of playing together and the hope that it never ends. “It’s all I’ve ever done, all I’ve ever known, just wanna play one more show and make some music with my friends”.”
