5-0-5

I'm an ordinary warrior
A fixture of the undertow
Currents come and currents go
I have sucked the bottom line
Vibrations of the daily grind
Rhythms come and rhythms go
It was beaten into my hand
It was beaten into my heart
It was beaten into my head

Chorus:

Run me out on a rail
Ride me out on the 5-0-5

I have prayed for overdrive
The brakes are gone, the engine's blind
And I can't believe you're by my side
Climbing up the bitter side
My feet are free my hands are tied
But ladders come and ladders go
I'm climbing over my head
I'm climbing over my head

I'm ankle deep in good intentions
Ankle deep in pride
Ankle deep in patience
Ankle deep in time

I'm strolling down the sewer like the other dreaming slobs
Grab a shovel and put on your boots and welcome to the club
Patience is my closest friend
My hair's on fire, I hope it spreads
While I sit here like a photograph

But I'm pissing into the wind
I'm pissing into the wind
I'm pissing into the wind

Run me out on a rail
Ride me out on the 5-0-5
