lyrics

step right up sir, hear the story of time
when we started brooding, started moving the lines

it was the picker who came to the unknown land with lofty plans
set forward on that chosen path the plunder all he can

come right up and lets get down to the line
i'll hunt while you gather a bouquet of flowers for the tomb

it was the picker who came to the unknown land with lofty plans
set forward on the unkown path to pillage all he can

now it goes like this:
i got a car but no gas
im goin no where fast
down this dusty highway

i've seen all of these roads
so many times before
they begin to look all the same

i've seen the light its not very bright
won't you come visit me where i am
i'd run to you i'd pass right thru
the borderline of your brilliant mind
but my broken bones and my breastless soul
they callin me to stay where i am
its so cold where i am

...

but my broken bones and my half drenched home
they callin me to stay where i am
don't wanna stay where i am
won't you call the doctor please
im feelin ill at ease
i think i got some disease
its called apathy
its called i don't really care you see
its called doctor check on me
me, me, me
