Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Everybody seems to wonder what it’s like down here. [But] I gotta get away from this day-to-day running around – everybody knows this is nowhere.

Ambulance Blues

I never knew a man could tell so many lies. He had a different story for every set of eyes! How can he remember who he’s talkin’ to? ‘Cause I know it ain’t me, and I hope it isn’t you.


Got mashed potatoes; ain’t got no T-Bone.

Slipping and sliding, and playing domino*.
Lefting and then Righting, it’s not a crime you know.
You gotta tell your story, boy, before it’s time to go!

* “domino” often refers to a country expected to react politically to events as predicted by the domino theory. [source] This would be in fine correlation with the “Lefting and then Righting” – the human tendency to sway quite easily between moderate, or extreme, political ideologies.

Welfare Mothers

Hard to believe that love is free, now – out on the street with the whole family, now.
