lyrics

18 miles to go, the sounds of “Desolation Row”
Echo thru our mobile home while you’re drumming with your headphones on
Head stuck in the clouds and the music’s playing really loud
A lonely soul lost in a crowd where no else could find you in Southern Carolina.

Here we go again (the situation that we’re in)
There’s three of us and one of “them,” and “them” is popping medicine
He’s cursing/calling us out, preaching what the tour is all about
By the time he screams and shouts, “YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PARTY!”
He’s down a fifth of whiskey…

(NA NA NA NA NA)
You’re counting dying star nowhere from home.
(NA NA NA NA NA)
We could leave him far behind or vote for him to stay
Let’s just hope and pray he leaves the drugs on Kings Hwy.

Take the 501, racing towards the setting sun
Will our destination lead to self-destruction?
NYC bound… Or was it Massachusetts bound? (Fuck it)
Winston-Salem bound. You wear an alcoholic’s crown
If victory meant falling down, you would be “King of Shit Town.”

(NA NA NA NA NA)
You’re counting dying star nowhere from home.
(NA NA NA NA NA)
We could leave him far behind or vote for him to stay
Let’s just hope and pray he leaves the drugs on Kings Hwy.

The last star has died over the eastern sea tonight
And all that’s left of you is navy blue and broken drum sticks that you used to use
Even though we had our way, we’re still stuck on yesterday
With a pillow pressed against my face on Kings Hwy (in a world of shame)
Take this time and cross the parallel lines like the crimes that we’re committed on that night
In hindsight
We couldn’t leave him far behind so he had no choice left but to stay
And all that’s left today are the pills on Kings Hwy.
