Way down the street there's a light in his place
He opens the door, he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything

 

He's got this dream about buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
And then he'll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about ev'rything

Throughout the night
When there's no direct light
And a thin veil of clouds
Keeps the stars out of sight
I can smell the colors
Outside on my lawn
The moist green organic
That my feet tread upon

Well, you wake up in the mornin'
You hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table
You see the same old thing
Ain't no food upon the table
And no pork up in the pan
But you better not complain, boy
You get in trouble with the man

 

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine an ever-lovin' light on me

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

Squeeze my lemon 'til the juice runs down my leg
Squeeze it so hard, I'll fall right out of bed
Squeeze my lemon, 'til the juice runs down my leg
(I wonder if you know what I'm talkin' about)
Oh, but the way that you squeeze it girl
I swear I'm gonna fall right out of bed

Some girls give me money, some girls buy me clothes
Some girls give me jewelry, that I never thought I'd own

Some girls give me diamonds, some girls, heart attacks
Some girls I give all my bread to, I don't ever want it back

Some girls give me jewelry, others buy me clothes
Some girls give me children, I never asked them for

I'm not tryin' to be your hero
'Cause that zero is too cold for me (Brr)
I'm not tryin' to be your highness
'Cause that minus, is too low to see, yeah

 

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
And I'm not stuffin', believe you me
Don't you remember I told ya
I'm a soldier, in the war on poverty, yeah
Yes, I am

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that all to the poor, yeah
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait till their judgment day comes, yeah

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no one's jamming their transmission

'Cause when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you

Do you hear me

Do you care

Do you hear me

Do you care

 

My lips are moving and the sound's coming out

The words are audible but I have my doubts

That you realize what has been said

You look at me as if you're in a daze

It's like the feeling at the end of the page

When you realize you don't know what you just read

 

What are words for

when no one listens anymore

What are words for when no one listens

What are words for

when no one listens

it's no use talkin at all

You are the star tonight
You shine electric outta sight
Your light eclipsed the moon tonight
Electrolite
You're outta sight

If I ever want to fly
Mulholland Drive
I am alive

Hollywood is under me
I'm Martin Sheen
I'm Steve McQueen
I'm Jimmy Dean

You are the star tonight
You shine electric outta sight
Your light eclipsed the moon tonight
Electrolite
You're outta sight
