Shakedown nineteen seven nine.
Cool kids never have the time.
On a live wire right up off the street
you and I should meet.

June bug skipping like a stone.
With the headlights pointing at the dawn.
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all...

And I don't even care
to shake these zipper blues.
And we don't know
just where our bones will rest
to dust, I guess.
Forgotten and absorbed to the earth below.

Double cross the vacant and the bored.
They're not sure just what we have in store.
Morphine city slippin' dues, down to see...

That we don't even care
as restless as we are
We feel the pull
in the land of a thousand guilts
and poured cement.
Lamented and assured to the lights and towns below.
Faster than the speed of sound.
Faster than we thought we'd go
beneath the sound of hope.

Justine never knew the rules
hung down with the freaks and ghouls
No apologies ever need be made.
I know you better than you fake it to see...

That we don't even care
to shake these zipper blues.
And we don't know
just where our bones will rest
to dust, I guess.
Forgotten and absorbed to the earth below.

The street heats the urgency of now.
As you see there's no one around.
