The empire's too big for one man, but see who's waiting in line.

lyrics

I got no reason to be satisfied
I treat my baby like a time bomb
four days and twenty since I been outside
bolt down the cellar for the cyclone
it's just like Valens said to Valentine
he said it's gonna be a long road

who got a reason to be satisfied?
who got the common sense to phone home?
I got a call from city homicide
they run the numbers on some type O
I know they're gonna make the water wine
they're gonna drill it like a sinkhole
it's just like Valens said to Valentine
he said you can't depend on people

out on the border with the simple minds
it takes a score to change a light bulb
it's just like Valens said to Valentine
he said it's gonna be a long road
and would you not feel so all alone
if everybody would just get stoned?
said would you not feel so all alone
if everybody must get stoned?
oh would you not feel so all alone
if everybody must get stoned?
said would you not feel so all alone
down in the cellar with the cyclone?

dropped my pack in the armored car
lost my papers along the way
thought my god was a foreign war
how could thoughts ever get that way?
lost my head in a foreign war
how could thoughts ever get that way?
