Dime Store Rock

Album: It's Five O' Clock Somewhere (1995)
  • Ain't it scary deep inside
    Aren't you naked with no pride
    Let me turn you on
    Oh, I can feed you lies
    Let me turn you on

    It's no longer a game
    And under your skin
    I am ready to dive in
    Parasites on television screens

    Hide in the cracks and
    Underneath the seams

    Dime store rock
    Has warped your mind
    Melting faces, deep set eyes
    Let me turn you on
    Hey baby what's your sign?
    Let me turn you on

    Goes along with the territory
    She wants to fuck you tonight
    Please, smelling like a wino
    On her knees
    Please, selling you her
    Gothic rocket dreams
    She's gonna burn you out
    To make it seem
    Like nobody wants anything from you
    Cause you're a has-been on TV

    It's no longer a game
    And under your skin
    I am ready to dive

    Let me turn you on
    Turn you, turn you on
