Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons,
Heard of some grave sites, out by the highway,
The sound of gunfire, off in the distance,
Lived in a brownstone, lived in the ghetto,

this ain't no fooling around
I ain't got time for that now
Transmit the message, to the receiver,
I got three passports, a couple of visas,
High on a hillside, the trucks are loading,
I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nighttime,

this ain't no fooling around
I ain't got time for that now
Heard about Pittsburgh, P. A.?
somebody might see you up there
to last a couple of days
headphones, ain't got no records to play
Why stay in college? Why go to night school?
Can't write a letter, can't send a postcard,
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
I'd like to kiss you, I'd love you hold you

we blended with the crowd
I know that ain't allowed
or in a suit and a tie
I don't know what I look like!
we make a pretty good team
you ought to get some sleep
then you should change your address
whatever you think is best
notebooks? They won't help me survive
the burning keeps me alive
don't want to catch no disease
you better watch what you say
