lyrics

I had this friend, his name was Jones
Kinda' looked like a vampire, pale skin, a bag of bones
Damn lucky to live through being young and dumb
Full of piss with a 72' Camaro, we was cocked like a loaded gun

Well it was fun riding shotgun, back in them days
But one afternoon, 20 years later, I recognized his face
He was Standing outside the Wal-Mart with a cardboard sign
I told him to climb on in, but this time I'll drive
_____________________________________________________
Jones - what the Hell are you doin' out here man?
The last time I saw you - you had a Shifter in your hand
_____________________________________________________
I could tell by the look in his eyes he was down on his luck
We sat there for two or three hours just a talkin' in the truck
with 3 kids and a wife waiting back at the Budget Inn
He was just doing what he had to do to pay for all his sins

Well I reckon time stands still when you're high on pills
But life ain't livin' when your day to day is really just deal to deal
Walkin' 'round town in concrete shoes with your arms in the air
and You know - they know - that you screwed up - and you hope that they still care
__________________________________________________________
Jones - what the Hell are you doin' out here man?
The last time I saw you - you were workin' on your Master plan
_____________________________________________________
He said Burger King's sells them doubles for a dollar a'piece
That's a damn good thing when it's 80 for an 80 down on Myrtle street
These kids'd be better off if me and their Mom was dead
But they ain't no place to do the deed when we're all in the same bed

So another day on the sidewalk, flaggin' West Stone Drive
To Jones it ain't much different now than serving hard time
He takes a fistful of rent money back with some cheese for the fridge
Well it sure as Hell ain't the TajMahal but it's better than the bridge
__________________________________________________________
Jones - what the Hell are you doin' out here man?
The last time I saw you - you had the future in your hand
