lyrics

I've spent my life waiting on women and planes
Who cracks the whip and who holds the reins
Regretting things I know I shouldn't have done
Im sleeping on a bench in the old bus station
Choking on pride and tired of waiting
On the next Greyhound on a Detroit red-eye run

We tried to work it out, for a while it worked just fine
Til a union got involved and she held up a picket sign
We tried to work it out, for a while it worked just fine
Til our factory closed its doors and shut down our assembly line
We didn't run out of love, we just ran out of time

Since Detroit Diesel burned to the ground
Somebody turned out the lights and we all left town
On a concrete ribbon, blue skies in our sights
Reminiscent of the dust bowl days
Cars broke down on all the freeways
With murderous crowds screaming about their rights

They tried to work things out, for a while things worked just fine
Til a union got involved and they held up a picket sign
They tried to work things out, for a while things worked just fine
Til our factory closed its doors and shut down our assembly line
We didn't run out of parts, we just ran out of time

Now there's more vacant houses than homeless people
A box on every corner with a cross and a steeple
Hypocrites in dresses, suits and ties
Thumping a book full of lies and fables
Contradictions and turning tables
Prestidigitation right before our eyes

They tried to work me out, for a while I worked just fine
Til Jesus got involved and he held up a picket sign
They tried to work me out, for a while I worked just fine
Til the churches closed their doors and shut down their assembly line
It never really was about love, just money and their time

I've spent my life waiting on women and planes
Who cracks the whip and who holds the reins
Regretting things I wish I never said
