i'm gonna die young (repeated through song)

i don't have the sort of vein that can lead me into late adulthood

by trash compacter or giant egg slicer

ape in cage with wire cutters
i'm in the tiny car, with the big-shoed feet
ape in cage with wire cutters
i'm in the tiny car, with the big-shoed feet
ape in cage with wire cutters
i'm in the tiny car, with the big-shoed feet

i've just been trying to keep my cool, in the oakland azul asylum
i've just been trying to keep my cool, in the oakland azul asylum
i've just been trying to keep my cool, in the oakland azul asylum
i've just been trying to keep my cool, in the oakland azul asylum- um

    General CommentI think what's so much better about the live version is that you hear him say 'by car or by gun' which you don't really hear on the album version. It just makes it feel sadder

    General CommentI concur, except for the fact that the singing is atrocious live. It ruins "Simeon's Dilemma" on the other Almost Live album for me.

    Stellar track, though.
