Lord today thereís no salvation
The bandís packed up and gone
Left me standing with my penny in my hand,
Thereís a big crowd at the station
Where the blind man sings his songs
He can see what I canít understand.
Itís the thirty-third of August
And Iím finally touchiní down
Eight days from Sunday
Lord and Iím Saturday bound.
Once I stumbled through the darkness
I tumbled to my knees
A thousand voices screaminí through my brain
Woke up in a squad car
Busted down for vagrancy
Outside my cell as sure as hell
It looks like rain.
Now Iíve put my dangerous feelings
Under lock and chain
Hide my violent nature with a smile
Though the demons danced and sang their songs
Within my fevered brain
Not all my God-like thoughts
Lord are defiled.
