lyrics

late for the train
held up, or hiding again
or just reflecting on an old refrain
somewhere on a porch
high head a smouldering torch
wasting leaves on forgotten vows
and where are those Stanford girls
now

sweating through the dark
they say it ain't so bad
and it's not so far just
not what he's used to

i know someday i'll be where the money won't leave me
and all of my time will serve only to please me
a round for my friends, and a round for the bar
damn all caution to hell, they don't know who we are
and we'll run through the streets with our hands in the sky
render twilight to dawn with a wrench of my eye
i'm the newly crowned King of awakening day
wrote the stars all afire 'cause i like 'em that way
ah let's run
