Sunset Boulevard in the spring I dont know what mess I'm in My hands are tied but my head is clean Is it a saving grace or a pyramid scheme? Driving wheel, guiding light My feet are floating, my wig's on tight A bag of pills, outta sight Collect my thoughts and hold on tight It's a great escape a grand old play, lets live for tonight For tomorrow we pay for today. Pay for the day. East Roosevelt it cannot be found Lemon Tree haze, we're going to ground How much time can we steal before we head to the lake Is it live for today, or make real from fake? Hold onto your hat, lace your shoes It's one for all for soon we lose Coyote calling snake eyes down Black sedan goes round and round Round and round But it's a great escape, a grand old play, Let's live for tonight For tomorrow we pay for today Pay for the day. Its any port in a storm put to the test Heading north cause there's no more west Stuck in a hole, reality writes a check, It cannot be cashed, so we push ahead. Push ahead. Get a taste of the underground chemical sleaze Life's in a bag, but it's a joke full of weed Bottle beckons, paranoid beach Who would have thought there were any lessons There left to teach? Coconut ice from Mexico It's too hot here so we go go go Barely make it through Sawyer's Bar We are the size of a bus, but only room for a car Humble myself to a greater need Cry and laugh, beg and bleed Try to find a place to rest Come back with a branch, but it Builds a poisoned nest. But it's a great escape, a grand old play Let's live for tonight for tomorrow We pay for the day. Pay for today. We've got the ethanol shakes The Moon glint in our eyes, Come on Baby, we dont want to die. Mason Boogie, amplified No one can say that we didn't try not to die We tried not to die. There's dreams of opium, wolves in the den They say it will kill you, but they won't tell you when Modern malady, thebaine buzz It's all we got, but it isn't enough It's not nearly enough It's never enough. Time to fly the coop, get outta dodge, Head for the south, get Cal-i-forn-i-a lost Wild turkey runs, buckeyed deer Hailstones the size of Modesto steer Beachside rainforest, Oregon gloom It's a living grave, a watery tomb Cross country bid for happiness Fergus falls, two eagles in the nest It's a great escape, a grand old play Let's live for tonight, for tomorrow We pay for today, Pay for the day. Race to find shelter from the storm High summer buzzing, mosquito lawn North country forest, beauty scene We live like paupers, but I feel like a queen Feel like a Queen. There's trouble brewing in Paradise We are too scared to roll the dice: Don't want to leave, too cold to stay No time left to put down the hay Bring in the hay. It's a great escape, a grand old play, Let's live for tonight, for tomorrow We pay for the day, Pay for today. It all goes to white winter in yonderland Take a load off baby, hold my hand. A nail in the rubber, and unbalanced mess; I've got everything to lose, but nothing I want to confess. I want to confess. Back to the beginning of the end We've a tribe to build, a wound to mend - Not much you can do when attacked from within Crazy Horse beckons, but it's Custer for the win. Custer for the win. There's a Crow in my attic, putting on the Ritz: I offer him quarter, but he wants a dime bit. Visions of Cass Lake dance through my head, It's the Ghost of a hope, laid down to rest. Laid down to rest. When all that you have is drained from a vein, But the leech keeps sucking all the same. When you keep chopping that palm tree for fifteen years But you Unkle marries some Hollywood wierd.. Hollywood wierd... It's a great escape, a grand old play Let's live for tonight, for tomorrow We pay for today. Pay for the day. Its too hard to handle, too hot to touch - You know when enough is too much. Stabbed in the back, Brought to your knees, Held up by the heartstrings And hung in the trees. Betrayal fences your last stolen kiss For a case of the blues and a last minute twist: A sting in the tail a broken alibi Let's live for today for tomorrow we die.. Tomorrow we die. It was a great escape, A grand old play! Let's live for tonight, For tomorrow We pay for today... Pay for the day.
