"On The Verge" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
Here we are, now where are we?
It's like nothing I've ever seen we got hoarse-throated huckster's whispered gimmicks
Rubbernecking the curious cynics and headlong-walkers,
One born every minute do I plug it in? or do I stick it in?

I don't know what came over me I'm too dumb for words
I didn't think I'd like it here at all but, I swear, I swear I'm on the
Verge

Here we are, now who are you? the long lost queen's of some hoodoo?
Well we're the last of the big-time penetrators playin'
Dead to fuck the undertaker the movie'll come out a little bit later the men,
The legend, the goat, the satyr

I don't know what came over me I'm too dumb for words
I didn't say I'd like it here at all but, I swear, I swear I'm on the verge

Here we are, now don't ask how the time to leave was kind now well don't cry,
Baby, there's no cause for grief

Deadheading's never gonna kill the chief it's an empty road without relief
And I'm a highway romance milking thief

I don't know what came over me I'm too dumb for words
I didn't think I'd like it here at all but, I swear, I swear I'm on the verge

    General CommentI think it's about someone starting to take drugs and how it makes things kinda wierd, but in a good way, and that the person could see himself taking some more, and the verge is the line between recreational and addiction..
