Joyride

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

Inside my head
Outside the night
Crave sensation, delight
There’s no direction
Just a joyride
There’s no place in mind

I watched it crumble
I watched it die
I felt so jaded
I felt alive
Watching it tumble

Down in an endless hole
Down in a smoking bowl
No pardon or parole

This night the highway is glittered and still
As death and decay on the side of the road

Inside my head
Outside the night
Confessing feelings of fright

There’s no direction
No place in mind
Redress your longing for time

I watched it crumble
I watched it die
I felt so jaded
I felt alive
Watching it tumble

Down in an endless hole
Down in a smoking bowl
No pardon or parole

We passed the hours in jaded canyons
Where the loose stones tumbled in the tribulation dance of years.
