Everybody Talks But No One Understands

long Superman …

long Superman
Got a suggestion for ya
Check for kryptonite before ya
Try to break a horse
Hey, ho, here we go now
Pulling onto the freeway
Just like any other weekday
Except there’s no remorse
Cause I’m gone
And now nothing seems to matter
Traded in my silver platter
For an empty plastic tray
There was nothing left worth waiting for
The kids burned down the candy store
And I’m waiting for a train

So long, Superman
I’ll light a candle for ya
Say a prayer when California
Falls into the sea
L.A. I never know ya
Goodbye, good riddance to ya
Go to hell and hallelujah
You never meant much to me
I don’t care
Where the track leads I will follow
I left like Lou Ferrigno
Tearing at the seams
I couldn’t take that town to more
A whole world I ain’t seen before
So I gave up the gravy
For sweet obscurity
So long, Superman
I’m taking a vacation
I’ll miss your medication
It helped to ease the pain
I’ll see you back in Reno
Outside the Grand Casino
In your old El Camino
Singing in the rain
No plans
I go where the machine goes
The past is a placebo
Dissolving in a drain
I sleep beside the railroad tracks
No more rent or income tax
I’ve got no fixed address now
I’m waiting for the train

When I Burn This Place Down

After 29 years
On the stroke of 13
I woke up from my life
Like it was all just a bad dream
My get up and go
Had just got up and split
After you ground me under your heel
Like a spent cigarette
When your memory’s crashed
When your out on the tiles
Just remember that
Everyone loves a good kid
Who can loose with a smile
When they break both your legs
Don’t come running to me
And baby if you were drowning
I’d throw you a funeral wreath
When I burn this place down
I’ll make sure you’re around
Girl, I want you to see
The big smile on my face
As I hitch a ride out of town
Well, I ain’t gonna come to your party
But baby, I’m sure gonna dance on your grave
It’s the least I can do
For the time that I spent as your slave
