lyrics

I always block Concrete Diamond just before she leaves the stage.
She says she’s free and she's got those items that I crave.
But I know she’s headed to George Holmes’ home
Cause he’s got them items that she craves.

My grip on Diamond has always been the loosest,
she slips like mercury through my fist.
I tell her, ‘God will always be there’.
And Diamond whispers, ‘but Jesus Kums & Gos.’

The oak didn’t open. The oak did not open for four hours or more.
por cuatro horas.
Oh well, Neosho was a no-show.
Prom was in overtime and I was overprimed.
Esperando en la Quinta, so I slow dance.
The slow dance, solo. (It was so-so)

Change your life, not your wife.

Too late, out of range, out of line. Out on the road,
I make one last ditch effort with Gretchen Schlotzky.
I think I spotted her yellow rig down at the Truck-o-Mat.
She says she’s on her way to Vinita with a bed
half-load of mackerel and half of fishscale - what a wildcat.
I climb up in her cabin as that yellow seeps into my veins,
turning my blood orange as I chart my course for my final flight.
