  • Blue skinned sleeping boys
    Man you're lookin' wasted
    Greasy wheels, streets of steel
    No tellin' what ya tasted

    Good guys bad guys
    Doesn't really matter
    Punch drunk, high on junk
    Sad you are so shattered

    Wasted lives of wasted drives
    Wasted days an' wasted nights
    Wasted this an' wasted that
    Wasted is where you're at

    Torpedoes in tuxedos
    Got iron in their hands
    Cotton sound, lost an' found
    Is in every crazy man

    Lonely rain, bad cocaine
    Doesn't really matter
    China white, don't treat ya right
    Sad you are so shattered

    Wasted lives of wasted drives
    Wasted days an' wasted nights
    Wasted this an' wasted that
    Wasted is where you're at

    Madhouse melodies
    Got beach rats on the run
    Golden tractors, low plus factors
    Silver bullets, rubber gun

    Redneck rocker, or devil daughter
    Doesn't really matter
    Cheap dope, ya can't cope
    Sad you are so shattered

    Wasted lives of wasted drives
    Wasted days an' wasted nights
    Wasted this an' wasted that
    Wasted is where you're at
