It's a modern day jousting match
of taxi cab versus ambulance.
No time, no judgment to dismiss,
so revel in the cheerful bliss.
Shots gone rogue to bullet-proof homes
striking the angels and decaying gravestones.

They asked for a final shot to sacrifice the liquid torches.
They wandered aimlessly with no sense of misdirection.

I've got a dime and a dollar, I'm placing bets.
Who do they think when they are,
with steel shields and masks devouring their faces?

Every chance, freelance, the last dance;
let's tango with fear!
Burn off the dangling stains
of a hero turned a Savior
turned a modern dictator.

It's a modern day jousting match
of taxi cab versus ambulance.
No time, no judgment to dismiss,
so revel in the cheerful bliss.

The road to my home paved itself with shadows
and washed away suds of hopelessness
but I've a history inside the jumper cables
of a car's backseat ripped inside out
to warm a freezing, impoverished pre-teen.

We've got our distinctions, we have no inquisitions,
no questions, just freedom
wrapped inside our safety nets.

Every chance, freelance, the last dance;
let's tango with fear!
Burn off the dangling stains
of a hero turned a Savior
turned a modern dictator.

It's a modern day jousting match
of taxi cab versus ambulance.
No time, no judgment to dismiss,
so revel in the cheerful bliss.
Shots gone rogue to bullet-proof homes
striking the angels and decaying gravestones.

I paid a proprietor to save a life
and he built a temple from kidney stones
to praise a King of a Darkened Night.
And I stepped inside a home for the ruthless
and swallowed the images in my mind,
a heavy blow to a fear of life and sunlight.

My hands can draw the pain and the need
but they swallow raw answers, replace with greed
on a second nature, New-Age dream.
