"Outcome" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Seventeen years in the city
Static clinging to the ceiling
Never did I think it would come to this
Outcome is different, than I expected

Riot cops, cheerleaders
Eyebrows painted on their heads
Mouthful of rotting cavities
Drinking Coca Cola in the street

Never did I think it would come to this
Outcome is different than I expected

Shot in the leg
Shot in the leg
My name is a bone
Nobody home
My hand is a wire
The sky is on fire
The drums aren't beating
Pistols in jeans
Left for dead
Left for dead
Left for dead
Dead as a fly

    General CommentGreat song. Like alot of "one foot in the grave" the song is dark and gives a sense of impending doom.

    It should be "Riot cops and cheerleaders".

    I don't know who does the backing vocals on this song but he and beck should team up more often. (It kind of sounds like Chris Ballew from Presidents of the USA and he did do some work on the album but he's not credited w/ any vocals. Maybe its someone else)

    General CommentI think the backing vocals are by Calvin Johnson from Beat Happening and Dub Narcotic. They should do a whole album togethor, though I doubt it would ever happen.
