  • Let me loose I just got back
    I was pushed and I got dragged
    I tasted mud, I tasted wine
    I've kissed the life I've left behind
    So say I choose to stick around
    I got news for this here town
    I kick the ball, I catch the bus
    And raise the roof for all of us

    Destination anywhere
    So far gone, I'm almost there
    Can't you see I can't deny
    I'm out of here like I'm on fire

    Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
    Television newsman so subliminal
    Bringing down the walls of wonderland
    Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
    Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
    Here I am, your demolition man

    Steal your car and leave a wreck
    Kiss your bride, I cash your check
    And Tyson plus, I'm ripped and torn
    Been on the edge since I was born
    I kick the jukebox, change the tune
    I break the bank and jump the moon
    I sink the fleet to catch a buzz
    And raise a glass for all of us

    Destination anywhere
    So far gone, I'm almost there
    Can't you see I can't deny
    I'm out of here like I'm on fire

    Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
    Television newsman so subliminal
    Bringing down the walls of wonderland
    Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
    Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
    Here I am, your demolition man

    I'm a beast in space
    I'm an acid taste
    I'm a primitive gong stuffed in your face
    It's enough to bring you to your knees

    Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
    Television newsman so subliminal
    Bringing down the walls of wonderland
    Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
    Everything, everyone and all the things I ought to be
    Here I am, your demolition man
    Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
    Television newsman so subliminal
    Bringing down the walls of wonderland
    Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
    Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
    Here I am, your demolition man Writer/s: CAMPBELL, COLLEN, ELLIOTT

    If you take a look at the VH1 Storytellers, Joe says... "You can thank that to Vivian... he wrote the chorus... you bastard!!".
