I'm still running 33s up underneath this truck Even though rush hour concrete is the only place I'm getting stuck Ain't on the farm no more but on a stretch of sunny days I still catch myself looking up at the sky Praying for a little rain
No I can't outrun these roots Even if I wanted to 'Cause they run too strong, run too deep Cutting right through the heart of me No it don't matter where I plant these boots Can't outrun these roots I can't outrun these roots.
There's still that back-home part of me, That can't help but see things a little differently Like how there ain't no need To put a 'G' on the end of huntin' or fishin' And I still got granddaddy's bible His old rifle and his name But I also got his pour a little more Coarsin' through my veins
Thank God I can't They're tangled up in every part of who I am Without 'em I know I don't stand a chance I can't outrun these roots

"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
