Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet 
June bug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

1-And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
  And we don't know just where our bones will rest
  To dust I guess
  Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in the store
Morphine city slippin' dues, down to see that 

We don't even care, as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it, to see
(rpt 1)

The street heats the urgency of sound
As you can see there's no one around
