State Lines Lyrics

Rich Kid (Nothing With Your Name on it)

You got no idea what you’re saying 

Don’t try and tell me that I’m stupid 

 

Cuz you never listen 

You’re always saying something 

But you aint got nothing 

Nothing with your name on it 

 

You always say you’re going places 

With your new-found education 

 

But you never listen 

You’re always saying something 

But you aint got nothing

Nothing with your name on it 

Daddy paid for it 

He paid for everything, Yeah 

 

Rich Rich Rich Kid 

Rich Rich Rich Kid

Yeah

Butch

Riding his bike down the corner of Adams and Main 

He got grey in his hair and others to blame 

For what went down in 82 

Talking like he knows you, but you aint seen him a day in your life 

 

He said I’m a man of integral spirit

Been keeping tabs on the things I’m hearing 

And everybody things they got the truth 

But let me tell ya boy what went down in 82 

 

See I quit hanging around all the time with that sweet thang Darlene 

Yeah I quit hanging around all the time with that sweet thang 

Got a new kind of woman, went by Mary Jane 

 

Mary got me going got me going 

Mary got me going got me going 

Mary got me going got me going got me going yeah yeah yeah

Aurora

Why would they give youa name

That took all the fun out of everything 

And who even thinks of a name like that 

Aurora you lonely spirit 

Still playing with the cards you were given 

Who told ya you could go out in that dress

 

Run to the sky tonight 

We’ll see you in the lights 

Run to the sky tonight 

We’ll see you in the lights

 

My God what a lawfully ending 

A woman with a natural beauty 

She never dreamed of a fate like that 

Aurora they should keep you quiet 

Hide you where we can’t find ya 

Baby you should run and not come back

 

Run to the sky tonight 

We’ll see you in the lights 

Run to the sky tonight 

We’ll see you in the lights

Reverend Simon

All the people 

Walking slowly to the 

Great big steeple 

Center city and 

Everybody walks so freely 

 

Reverend Simon 

Grabs his bible 

Makes his way to 

Center stage 

Every week he 

Walks so freely 

Every week he walks so freely in the light 

 

Reverends mother she

Takes the front row seat 

Starts to wonder how her boy learned to 

Walk so freely, walk so freely in the light 

All the things you do never add of right 

 

 

Little Johnny sits in the nose bleads he 

Hates his mommy but 

Loves the way she sings 

Every Sunday she’s walking freely in the light 

Everybody is walking freely in the light 

Everybody is walking freely in the light 

Stranger

I tell you she’s a stranger 

Who left her mark on the world 

She’ll try an tell you she’s my lover 

But I’ve never seen this girl before 

 

So wipe that smile off your face dear 

You’re not folling anyone 

You got a funny way of lying

And I’m done 

 

I’m gonna takeback all the time I wasted 

Trying to be someone I always hated for you 

You never thought I’d live up to anything 

But here I am 

 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers anymore 

 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers anymore 

 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers 

I don’t talk to strangers anymore 

 

I’m gonna takeback all the time I wasted 

Trying to be someone I always hated for you 

You never thought I’d live up to anything 

But here I am 

Gloria 

Leaves are falling 

But I still feel the same as yesterday 

She’s not calling 

And I can’t turn the page, can’t look away 

 

Gloria if I sing to ya 

Would you hear me 

Would you hear me 

It’s been too long

Since I knew ya 

Beautifully answer me 

 

Maybe I am foolish 

To think you’d stay for good this time 

But if I told ya honey

You would feel my love 

Would you try 

 

Gloria if I sing to ya 

Would you hear me 

Would you hear me 

It’s been too long

Since I knew ya 

Beautifully answer me 

 

Because I’ve been feeling 

Feeling like wind 

You don’t see it 

You don’t see it anyway 

You can feel it 

You feel it in your breath 

In your sprit you can feel it 

You feel it oh

Gloria if I sing to ya 

Would you hear me 

Would you hear me 

It’s been too long

Since I knew ya 

Beautifully answer me 

The Cougar

If you walked a mile in my shoes

Then you’d be in love with her too

As I walked back home I saw her pull her curtains open wide

Then everything just came to a stop

 

Now, Nancy’s Mom I know it’s wrong 

And if I could, I would change it

But I knew from the start you had my heart

No way to disengage it 

 

If it could be just you and me 

then our lives could be so sweet

But for now I know that I gotta go

Back home, across the street

 

If you walked a mile in her heels

The ones that matched her jet black hair

Then you’d know just how her heart raced when she saw me standing there

And she knew she had so much more to share

 

Now, Nancy’s Mom she knows it’s wrong and

If she could, she’d change it

But she knew from the start she had his heart

Now she had to engage it 

 

She said “it could be just you and me 

 ‘cause I know you’re so sweet,

But for now I know that you gotta go

Back home, across the street”

 

Now, Nancy’s Mom and I knew it was wrong 

And if we could, we’d change it

But her husband went away on business

So we had some of our own

 

Then college came and went, now 

I feel so alone and incomplete

But I’ll always have the time I spent with

Her across the street

Fever Dreamer

Let me live on the greener side 

I wanna be I wanna be like you 

Let me love show be whats behind 

What it is what it is you do 

You do 

She’s a woman with the devil’s eyes

And they look oh they look at you 

What she does oh is no surprise

But honey I want you 

Ohoooo

 

Fever dreamer

Let me see ya 

Green eyed lover let me love ya

Fever dreamer

Let me see ya 

Green eyed lover let me love ya

 

Fever dreamer oh woah a oh yeah (this is an instrumental section) 

 

Fever dreamer

Let me see ya 

Green eyed lover let me love ya

Fever dreamer

Let me see ya 

Green eyed lover let me love ya

Let me love you love you yeah oh woah aaa

Run Rabbit Run

Feelin numb,

I got Wings on the radio

Doin 90 in a school zone

Im a one-man band on the run

 

Better run, run, rabbit, run while you can,

‘Cause nobody’s here to hold your hand

This time

Grab the guns and the money, do what you can,

Don’t look back, don’t put your head in the sand

Your time is due

 

Change the station,

Rockin out to Rachmaninoff

High’s wearin off

My cool starts to wear thin

Panic’s setting in

Better run, run, rabbit, run while you can,

‘Cause nobody’s here to hold your hand

This time

Grab the guns and the money, do what you can,

Don’t look back, don’t put your head in the sand

Your time is due

 

Better run run Rabbit, leave while you can

Don’t turn back, don’t say goodbye

‘Cause there’s no time, for you

Cafe Racer

Not a care in the world 

No siren not a word 

You can hear me

Pushing 80 in a 55 

Flying down this road 

Cutting corners close 

I’ll be gone before you blink your eye 

 

My baby said shes waiting for me on the other side of town 

I can feel it, I can feel it 

I barely notice anybody anytime she’s around 

I don’t see em I don’t see em

 

Pushing my limits

Call an ambulance

Can you hear me 

Can you hear me

Cherrish my spriit 

Lost within the wind 

I was gone

Before I knew it

 

My baby said shes waiting for me on the other side of town 

I can feel it, I can feel it 

I barely notice anybody anytime she’s around 

I don’t see em I don’t see em

 

So there I was 

In the middle of the night 

There I was 

In the middle of this crime 

 

My baby said shes waiting for me on the other side of town 

I can feel it, I can feel it 

I barely notice anybody anytime she’s around 

I don’t see em I don’t see em
