Lyrics
Red streak on the run
Eleven June Nineteen
Milk loaded into the program
Solitary masters
Who own your hearts
I know, I know
You won't listen to me
Maybe I'm not happy
But now I'm free
Yeah you know about creeping
But I'm bigger on the street

The more it grows
The more it shows
That eye witness energy
Can't be beat

I won't stare at the floor anymore
I won't hurt you if you open the door
Sunshine maudlin man
White, white Jackson
Last cop out in a series
I would have known you anywhere

Mother of all life
Gives the strong a home
Beat the human meat
Maybe get some sleep
Desperate from the weight of the crown
If you got skeletons shake 'em
Yeah you know about creeping
But I'm better on my feet

The more it grows
The more it shows
That eye witness energy can't be beat

The Sewers of Mars
A minor infection, that's what we've endured
The car slows down, another curve
I carved out a block of time
In the hall of kings

Look at the clock
Three twenty two
Look at it again it hasn't moved

And that cane hasn't moved
Since his wife died
But he sure enough kept that prescription alive

Losses that were never counted
Burned out on dollar bets
Don't cross the river, you won't get wet
You can carve yourself a lean life, baby
Out on this shore

The book on him
He doesn't try
He'll be lucky to come in by the fourth of July

Fresh roses in the ring
And the hanging bell
The moon is full but it's too soon to tell

She cries that there's no one around
She says she misses you
She's dead but she wants to break out
And send a message through
If my head is right I can do it tonight
Bring her spirit into view
They call me the specialist
And I'm ready to do business with you

Well, I've beat more odds
Than the final four
At the first sign of fear
I'm in the door

And you get a little hope
That's what you pay me for
And when the pale world calls me back
You're gonna need some more

Ray O Vac
Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac

You believe in cotton candy and you're not lying
Your brother and his friends are living
In a dying border town
Where getting out means running away
And getting crossed means going down
They suck hard and they choke it back
Now how can you bust up an act like that?

Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac
Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac

When I was twelve and my a__ was up for grass
The kids at school had their religion, s__ and greed
Something was wrong with them
How could any kid know what was coming on
They suck hard and they choke it back
Now how can you bust up an act like that?

Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac
Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac
Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac
Gotta build your rock on the Ray-O-Vac
