New Jersey Turnpike ridin' on a wet night 'neath the refinery's glow, out where the great black rivers flow
License, registration, I ain't got none but I got a clear conscience
'Bout the things that I done
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me

Maybe you got a kid, maybe you got a pretty wife the only thing that I got's been both'rin' me my whole life
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me

In the wee wee hours your mind gets hazy, radio relay towers lead me to my baby
Radio's jammed up with talk show stations
It's just talk, talk, talk, talk, till you lose your patience
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me

Hey, somebody out there, listen to my last prayer
Hiho silver-o, deliver me from nowhere

    General Commentgreat song to listen to when ur drivin at night in the middle of nowhere...sounds like its about a lunatic... gives me chills, the riff sounds like a heartbeat or a pounding in your head or something to that extent... almost impossible not to jump outta your seat when bruce screams at the end...

    as far as meanings... i think the guy is a lunatic, and he's committed some type of crime and he doesnt want the state trooper to pull him over b/c he knows he'll have to kill him if he does... thats why he talks about the troopers wife and kids, and he keeps repeating "please dont stop me"... anyone think otherwise?
