lyrics

THE IDIOT TRAIL

V1
the sign says...YOU ARE HERE!
gee, that's a relief...

a red dot...on a line
of some lunatic's reasoning

V2
what logic!...what sense!
so stupid, it's staggering

an idiot...trail
that doesn't know where it's going

V3
can't miss it?...oh, yes i can
i can miss anything

gimme a hint...and i'll drop it...

Bridge 1
like a bush league catcher with a hole in his mitt
all the balls are taking crazy bounces

proudly point out the joints on your strip
but all i see are slaughterhouses

if fun can kill ya
and work can kill ya
and love can kill ya
and the air can kill ya
that doesn't leave a whole lotta options...

Chorus 1

saddle up, buckaroos!
it's all uphill from here
mount yer big dumb animals
take plenty of dope and beer
the scenery's such a wreck
it'll crash yer cameras...ya-hoo

we're taking the idiot trail x 4

Bridge 2 (1/2 reprise)
if fun can kill ya
and work can kill ya
and love can kill ya
and the air can kill ya
i guess there are a whole lotta options, afterall

V4
so be happy...but beware
there's teeth behind the grin

so sweet...so instant
the hungry never win

V5
cold-cocked...cold cuts
a deli of disarray

is this art?...or an ashtray?

Bridge 3
the difference is moot, snuff out yer cheroot
and see if anybody complains

slice through the sky in a flying knife
or would you rather jump the bullet train?

if food costs money
and clothes cost money
and gas costs money
and money costs money
i guess ya need a whole lotta money...

Chorus 2
buckle up, buckaroos!
we're headed for angry weather
and every part in this thing
came from the lowest bidder
last chance to use the can
and call your mothers...

we're taking the idiot trail x 2

yippy-ki-oh-ki-ah, huzzah, three cheers...

we're taking the idiot trail x 4
