Shakedown 1979.
Cool kids never have the time.
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet.

Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed 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 into the earth below.

Double cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in the 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 the ghouls.
No apologies ever need be made,
I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don’t care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below.

The street heats the urgency of sound
As you can see there’s no one around
