I'm mean and I'm dirty, like none you've ever seen
Bad habits drip like honey, no tongue can lick me clean
I'm not of royal blood, I've never been discreet
Better lock up your daughters, we're comin' to your town
We're here for the slaughter, kick you when you're down
Kick you when you're down

We're not for the innocent, we're not for the innocent
We're not for the innocent, let the beast run wild

I've been damned, I've been cursed, I've been guilty and abused
I spit the hangman in his face and hung him on his noose
Habitual threat, I got you in my claws

Gonna tan your hide, rip the flesh off your bones
Look me in the eye, and you're gonna turn to stone
You're gonna turn to stone

We're not for the innocent, we're not for the innocent
We're not for the innocent, let the beast run wild

Better lock up your daughters, we're comin' to your town
Better pray we're not around

Let the beast run wild

We're not for the innocent, we're not for the innocent
We're not for the innocent, let the beast run wild

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
