Pretty blonde said strike it west You can wow them with A killer screen test Taste the spice she kept under her dress Left him shaking like A shaman on a vision quest Hey blockbuster Losing your luster Hey blockbuster Shoot me into outer space She asked if he had any dreams Breaking out of here Taking it to extremes Maybe something to the other side Of prairie skies To oceans far and wide Hey blockbuster Losing your luster Hey blockbuster Shoot me into outer space Sometimes sitting by the pond Nobody else around Aspirations lost daydreams found Snatched away with hardly a sound Beer in hand looking at the stars She’s at his side On the hood of his car Arm around her shoulder holding tight Everything’s an afterthought See the stars but can’t see the light Hey blockbuster All that you can muster Hey blockbuster Shoot me into outer space Hey blockbuster Losing your luster Hey blockbuster Shoot me into outer space

I'm not Waiting for a fast train I'm not Wasting another day I'm not Waiting for the last train I'm not Wasting another day The cold winds of Kankakee They aren't blowing me out of town I still got something to say My piano's in the street Eviction isn't bringing me down I still got a song to play I'm not Waiting for a fast train I'm not Wasting another day I'm not Waiting for the last train I'm not Wasting another day Let's have a drink at Richie's Roost Before they bar the doors And close the place for good We can toast our failed futures While we hoist another Coors And carve our names in the wood I'm not Waiting for a fast train I'm not Wasting another day I'm not Waiting for the last train I'm not Wasting another day Future always come so fast The past is never meant to last You could mean a lot to me If you see past this small town scene

Traveling bible salesman Keeping a corpse in the trunk Gun under the seat Careful who he meets Strange things happen when you get drunk Tell me can you see it Tell me can you see in his eyes Tell me can you see it Tell me can you see through his lies Basket full of Bibles Try to pass them around Missing some pages About the rock of ages Best to be leaving this town Whiskey and women never done him any good Makes him do the things he never should Riverbank in the moonlight Slide him into the drift Who could tell the law If nobody saw Backroads always been a gift Tell me can you see it Tell me can you see in his eyes Tell me can you see it Tell me can you see through his lies

Wishes on a king bed (as I) Listen to your words said (and you) Say you hear my heartbeat (cuz I) Feel I’m on the hot seat Promises will ring true (and I’ll) Never ever leave you (but the) Worlds slide out of one ear (and then) Suddenly you’re not here Where do we go, in the face of the unknown? Questions, answers, hypnotize You don’t have to ask me why. When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes Running out the doorway (cuz you) Never see it my way (but it’s) Better than we once feared (and I) Love it when you’re right here Where do we go, in the face of the unknown? Questions, answers, hypnotize You don’t have to ask me why. When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes Now we are together (living) Happily ever after (don’t you) See now how it’s easy (if you) Just learn to believe me. Where do we go, in the face of the unknown? Questions, answers, hypnotize You don’t have to ask me why. When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes

Crackling sound of the fire Smoke stretch like a spire Reaching up searching for God’s love Nothing’s there waiting above Border run Border run Sun burnin me like an oven Memories all forgotten I am here and you are waiting Someplace else anticipating Border run Border run The border lord is saying you are forsaken All you have and are will be taken Dust fillin my mouth She waits eyes to the south Border run Border run

Whiskey stings and cocaine burns These two things always return I escape the realm with methods pure and true A morning too distant to come into view Gravity is rotten business When Netwon's laws finally hit us And I am smiling through clenched teeth Wondering where I might find relief Watch me fall Watch me fall Watch me fall without you Give me the gas and leave me your shoes Can you help out a fool trying to pay his dues Big uppers lead to even bigger downers I'm a spectacle of lunacy for all the out of towners Watch me fall Watch me fall Watch me fall without you Getting lost in California I am losing my mind I can't see you smile in my memory Searching for a handle that can finally remind Where I come from And what I am Another pilgrim In a pagan land Burdened with troubles I can't comprehend Left in the alley to fight and to fend Supernatural spectres that scream in the night Taunted with visions of wrongs never made right Watch me fall Watch me fall Watch me fall without you

Pretty girls in white cars Pretty girls in white cars Cruising up and down the boulevard tonight Pretty girls in white cars Pretty girls in white cars Looking perfect as a postcard tonight Hanging out on the sidewalk Timing the stoplight’s switch Love lasts as long as sky rockets Pretty girls in white cars Pretty girls in white cars Cruising up and down the boulevard tonight Pretty girls in white cars Pretty girls in white cars Looking perfect as a postcard tonight Heading out on a Friday night Radio playing our summer song Love lasts as long as the next stoplight Just another girl

Kathy has blue eyes but she don't have the blues Sashaying down the street in her high heel shoes Holding her coat cuz the weather's turning warm Leavin smiles behind her like stars being born Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy smiles and turns her face up towards the sun She's done with the doing of things that she had to get done Sipping her coffee with a straw so she dont stain her teeth Lounge on the bench by the fountain like a goddess in relief Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Look to me with true love's surprise Could it really be That Kathy sees me as Kathy's prize? (That Kathy sees me as Kathy's prize?) Kathy hopes the showers stay away She's planning to meet up with me at the end of her day Thinking bout the kisses that she wishes to put on my lips Blushing at the thought of my hands resting on her hips Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh Kathy's eyes Ooooooh

The jailhouse doors are up locked tight And won't open anytime soon All the shit I never did right Left us playing so out of tune On the run But caught again Jailhouse bars Never bend Footsteps echo in the dark I can barely see the wall Shadows drift and dance so stark Whisper fates like some secret call On the run But caught again Jailhouse bars Never bend This cell is all I have to show Leaving you was my own doing For a fool who just could not grow You wound up winning and leaving me losing Ran but didn't ponder where Felt like it was the right thing to do Surprised to learn how much I cared Thinking I could find someone better than you On the run But caught again Jailhouse bars Never bend

American radio in the heartland Screaming of coming destruction American Radio……American Radio American radio is a wasteland Ignorance fills the gaps to connection American Radio……American Radio Dials turn it’s all the same Who done wrong, they’re to blame Black or brown it’s all the same It’s all too much American radio for the homeland Hypocrites waiting on the resurrection American Radio……American Radio
