  • Far away from any road
    Froze my heart in solitude
    Where your passerby can see
    Our life's highway guard within
    Knowing when our last does fail
    Thy compassion shall prevail
    Father with thee, let me be
    On life's highway, God with thee

    We need vices
    We need vices
    Where's all my hope and my marriage license? (Where's my hay?)

    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    We need vices at fifteen thousand degrees

    She said goodbye to the ground she said goodbye to the ground
    She said goodbye to the ground
    And jumped

    Our good Creator (oh no)
    The dog in the manger
    Where is my shrink and my mind's eraser? (we sing a sad song)

    That forest burned (do you see smoke?)
    That forest burned (a halo)
    That forest burned
    We need ten years on rewind so we can return

    She said goodbye to the ground she said goodbye to the ground
    She said goodbye to the ground she said goodbye to the ground
    She said goodbye to the ground
    And jumped

    We need vices
    We need vices
    We have neither the plans nor disguises

    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    Those days are dead (forgive me)
    We need vices and wheels to the funeral gate

    She said goodbye to the ground she said goodbye to the ground
    She said goodbye to the ground
    And jumped Writer/s: JESSE LACEY
