When i'm away, when i'm okay. When I don't die when i live when everything turns out my way ill take the first freight train out of texas west bound to the promise land or bust and at the promise land i've found that i'm hangin on by the skin of my teeth. I'm walkin down this dead end road but i've got my lucky shoes filled with my lucky feet. All around me, all i can see bombs manufactured, made by man and placed in man's hands and when the nuclear rain starts to pour on my head i'll lay it down to the floor lay it down to the floor and pray for rain to come and wash this blood away where my sisters play and my brothers drink I can't even begin to think of the catastrophe upon me upon you what shall we do? So i'll pray for rain to come and wash this blood away where my sisters play my brothers drink i cant even begin to think of the catastrophe upon me upon you what shall we do we'll get away, Another Country

I'm just a boy with big dreams. And like a dream I wish i could have you every night of the week, but I can't. So I'll have to learn to adapt, and although I feel so incomplete. All my doll parts are intact. OooOoOooOooOo Well maybe one day we'll make the MTV. But until then we'll have to get used to playing for pennies in the street and they'll give us dirty looks. and they'll say "Boy! you can't play guitar you'd better hit the books" "Better start a family be the man society says you have to be" OooOoOooOooOo We've been waiting for you since mornin' Jack, what took you so long were you fuckin around in the back of nothingness? Of greed and ugliness? OooOoOooOooOo I saw a beggar with a sign in his hand, it said "I fought just to fall so far down I can't get back up again" So could you spare a nickel or a dime. So I don't have to die broke, so I don't have to die a joke, So I don't have to choke on this noose around my throat. OooOoOooOooOo You'd better mind your manners and watch your tongue. and if you forget how to apologize you'd better hope you're never sorry again. Cause these uniformed men carry silver guns, and they'll put a bullet in your brain if you don't walk and talk and speak and think just like them. OooOoOooOooOo OooOoOooOooOo OooOoOooOooOo OooOoOooOooOo (AyyAyyAyyAYyAYyy)

Ramona, Ramona your song is so sad and sweet but it's not really you it's me doing all the thinking doing all the speaking Ramona, Ramona You make me feel just like a child a child all alone a child without a home a child without a home Ramona, Ramona I'm sittin on the bathroom floor too drunk to talk too drunk to talk about what's really goin on Ramona, Ramona Just let me hold you in my arms Until your strings are all worn Till i aint feeling down and out Till i find something, something to smile about

When I woke up, I was feeling a bit ill. So I swallowed a little purple pill and it made it all go away. Until the next day when i woke up, and I felt just like you. I realized that's what this brainwashin will do it'll make me talk just like you it'll make us walk two by two. oh what dumb luck, it is to have a view of that room looking in at you. I can't prevent you from all those mistakes that you're bound to make or all the trial and err it takes to realize that you're human like the rest of us. You're bound to make the same mistakes just don't make a big ol' fuss. Don't be so distressed did I happen to mention that I'm impressed I'm just a flower on the wall of society. i won't bother you if you don't bother me. I won't be brainwashed you should stop tryin' immediately pretty please. O what dumb luck, it is to be a part of this terrible clusterfuck. Of greedy, animalistic intentions that you just can't seem to duck. I'm gonna go away and stay for good this time. 'Till all these brainwashed minds decide that they'll subside. Into the gutters of the average American streetside (white picket fence, two and a half kids, american flag, all that jazz)

You were at the show, I was sittin' at home wishin i was anywhere but here wishin i was anything but alone. You called from a payphone you had a crazy tone you said i want to get away from it all i need somebody to break my fall - you said let's travel east until we find some peace to a play where war means nothing more than just another three (3) letter word Well i hope your fears will come and go on Sunday Morning That subcultured youth you know will implode on Sunday Morning All your friends will become your foes on Sunday Morning But I hope you stay another day You called from a payphone you had a crazy tone you said i want to get away from it all i need somebody to break my fall - you said let's travel east until we find some peace to a play where war means nothing more than just another three (3) letter word. We've got a country with a name it's never gonna change. No matter what those revolutionaries say things will always stay the same Well i hope your fears will come and go on Sunday Morning That subcultured youth you know will implode on Sunday Morning All your friends will become your foes on Sunday Morning But I hope you stay another day

The moon rides high over Texas tonight when i heard the news when i layed down and cried and ill be wishing on a satellite that youll come back tonight that youll come back tonight 'cos all that live must die someday but not all that live lived the way you did We'll meet you on the other side. Where no soul can be sold Where no love can grow cold where the cities made of gold meet you on the other side where no soul can be sold where no love can grow cold and youll remember our names as we walk through the gates where no soul can be sold where no love can grow cold where the cities made of gold
