This road bubbles in the heat
Chopping rocks, the only cracker that mine eyes can see
These rails have run me out of town and shipped me down the line
What once was "mine is yours" is now "what's yours is mine"

And those eyes could stain glass
With the glaze you try to pass
The overalls are down but the sheep line up too fast
Shots and bumps and drops and lines
Are old shifty friends of mine

You can move your body to the beat of the pigs
While they rip out your spine and they shoot out your legs
You live for the rhythm but you live on your knees
If we're really this stupid then we'll never succeed

This morning in a drunken haze I think I talked to you
I think we went to breakfast and then walked down to the zoo
I said some things that I don't mean but don't remember now
It happens all the time these days, the words just fall right out

When this joke dies
The party hats and streamers really start to fly

Look up at the sky where the frogs rain down
And the blood floods the riverbed and seeps deep into the ground
Our time is now
