Machine Gun Mouth

from by Sprout the Band



Am I crazy, or did I catch you running around again
Reckless lady, you won't stop till you experience every sin
You keep it shady, you love to crawl these streets most every night
Little baby, one day you'll find there's a little bit more to life

Will you burn out from the heat of your flame?
Can you even remember your name?
Machine gun mouth and corkscrew eyes
You've got the power to mesmerize
But you can't save yourself

You told your tales of county jail, full of drunken pride
My shoulder was your leaning post every time you cried
Your room's a dump and you're sniffing bumps off that record sleeve
I should have know, you weren't full grown, your body it deceives



You cut your ties, your offhand lies do all your talking for ya
You're full of shit, you've dug your pit in Southern California
If you don't keep pace you'll win the race, cross that finish line
But you can't come back, you'll fade to black, won't be no more time
