When all you want is to bury your head
All you can think is “I wish I were Dead”
That Thing in your chest called your Heart feels like lead
Come talk to me, Baby – Lie beside me in bed

You’re not ever wrong to feel what you feel
Remorse to Self-Hatred when you’ve been a heel
At some point you must think, “Ah, what’s the Big Deal?”
If God can forgive me – I am Rock, I am Steel

We all get that way when we’re wrong and we’re right
Most important of all is Don’t Give Up the Fight!
It’s like courage with Heroes – They’re still filled with fright
But put it aside – Try with all your might

Maybe adrenaline is the Gift from Above
That allows us to act with complete sense of Love
Forgetting ourselves – No inside Push & Shove
The Reward will come later on the Wing of a Dove

So – Come here, My Baby, Nestle in tight
There’s nothing a hug cannot wrestle or fight
I promise you, Darlin’, You’ll conquer your fright
Whispering now – I kiss you Good Night


Look up at the sky
Then head down the road
Don’t ask no one why
Or for help with your load

Some while back
I used to care
But that Station’s tore down
And I ain’t got the fare

The Express whizzes by
Swift as the hare
The Driver’s a Clown
Never been anywhere

He’s always the same
If you smile or frown
He won’t stop till he gets
To the Big City town

They say that the train
It’s sold out a’plenty
Cain’t get you a seat
Tho’ most of ’ems empty

They say that the seats
Get sold out real early
Must need room for their feets
Those Big Shots are burley

The men all wear ties
Ladies blush when they smile
They all fake tellin’ lies
‘Cept for once in a while

Never once heard a thing
That was worth takin’ home
No Rich Sugar Daddy
No Sweet Honey Comb

My clothes have red feathers
A Fat Lady donated
But you won’t hear her sing now
She’s incarcerated

I have been beaten
And I’m beaten down
But for Love of the Money
I still head Up Town

I make Mud Pies for Breakfast
Jaw on Earthworms for Lunch
But the folks around here –
Ain’t no sorrier bunch

I cain’t spend a nickel
Won’t give up a dime
This guy I been chasin’
Should be doin’ some Time
