Lyrics
Gridlock, look what you did, look what you did
You locked up the grid locked up the grid
You got the whole world flipping it's lid

Torture, is something we do at night for fun
You can't fit my burger in your bun
I'm thinkin' I'm not the only one
Who's feeling so alone
Awaiting patiently for the cyclone
I will call you on the phone and turn your bleeding heart to stone

And I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker, poker

Sometimes in a lifetime of lies
b_____ tears are the tears she cries

And are you joking with your tape recorder
You were sent here to restore the order
and give us just one more moment of sanity

Science, is just a suspension of belief
A way to explain away the grief
And every policeman needs a chief

Gridlock, look what you did, look what you did
You locked up the grid locked up the grid
You know you gotta gotta
Keep your love hid from all those roguish things
Who live to kneecap k___by knees?
Who cares what anyone here believes
I wear my heart on rayon sleeves

I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker

One night in a night life so white
The vampiress she takes a bite
She wallows in her delight
As you lose your will to fight

The news today was a real shocker
You're sitting down but you're off your rocker
Just another prisoner of fantasy

I ain't playing no joker poker
No joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
No joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
No joker poker
