LyricsEdit

No one of any note is in the crowd
Guys in Bermuda shirts are chewing on cigar stubs
I get better as I get more worn down
Houselights like an amplified inferno
PA system borrowed from the high school
Breathe through my mouthpiece
I hate this town

And there's a whole long list of other things I hate
I had to starve myself all week to make weight
Cleveland, Ohio
1985
Almost out of the woods
Awake and alive

Bucket full of blood and dirty water
Voices screaming at me from my corner
Head for the clutches
When I need to buy time
Take a couple of shots right to the liver
Then remember what the food was like in prison
Stick to the game plan
Stall for time

And there's a whole long list of other things to do
And the best ones I won't probably get around to
Cleveland, Ohio
1985
Almost out of the woods
Awake and alive
