"Hitchhikers"

Yeah yeah!  I've been running on fumes
black and blue for you.
Yeah yeah!  I've been broke, I've been broken,
I've been broken loose.

Losing touch with my friends
statuesque living dead

Yeah yeah, I've been burning this wick at both ends
Yeah yeah, burning bridges as I'm walking across them

A thousand miles from home and everybody that I used to know and used to grow up tall with
Heavy eyes on the road you god damn better know that I know better than to grow up hopeless
hopeless heart beaten bloody by the status quo, dragging on just to find out where the traffic goes
goes and goes... and goes until you know you know

Just one last ditch for the fix
Yeah yeah, I've been running on fumes
Sharpened, I chew through the bit
Yeah yeah, I've been running off
we're lost in the songs and we don't rest
broken jaws screaming
we're lost in the sound of all our voices
but god damn do we sing

Now where in god's name, yeah, yeah, where in god's name have I been?  I've been gone for god damn forever growing broke, cold, but clever, bold.  Windows open weather or not, rain or shine, ready or caught up in the act in the bathroom, pants around the black shoes, hugging on them last few drops of that beat box.  Whatever the cost.  Whatever the loss you put on the costume whatever it cost you.  Just because you do...

Just one last ditch for the fix
Yeah yeah, I've been running on fumes
Sharpened, I chew through the bit
Yeah yeah, I've been running off

Fuck yeah!  I've been running on fumes
black and blue for you
Fuck yeah!  I've been broke, I've been broken
I've been broken loose
