I don't want to stop the yacht while we got cash to burn

See young Abraham he's trying to crawl from aft to stern

Freedom ride

Sunshine on my face love has filled me by osmosis

The ocean feels me blessed consecrated by psychosis

Misery begs a choice addictive just like anything

Depression can feel good as comforting as anything

Freedom ride

Let the credits roll when the story's got a happy ending

'Cause it never lasts

Freedom ride

I beat you down and took your wife

But she used me to save your life

I realize she still loves you

So here is what we both shall do

Since she used me to find her man

I still love her you undrstand

I can make you stay or make you run

Your boy and my wife and my loaded shotgun

Yo di lee o di lee o o 

Yo di lee o di lee o di lee o

Here's the thing to see with glee

If you have nerve and skill like me

Your brain is mushy and luck's divine

Here's the game to play one time

So you are weak and I don't care

Just get your punk ass up from there

A heartbeat stin gs a breath is time

Relentlessly hating's abusing the shine

Yo di lee o

My request ain't jest it's for your life

You win I lose and if I win you die

I'll flip this coin mad4 from Satan's tears

And see who walks and who dies here

Either way you three are dead

I make my own luck is how I was bread

 When the tears hit the ground the pin hits the shell

It's the onoy way truly 'fore the  night be fell

Yo di lee o

The coin pierced the moment and shattered the sun

And Troubadour stroked and caressed his shotgun

The crack it then punctured the essence of fear

Johnny Redfoot had shot him confusingly clear

One golden bullet from Johnny's side arm

The lusting of angels who never knew harm

He said "saddle up we're gone with a shove

The only reason for living is love."

Yo di lee o

O di lee o

I don't know how long that I have been here

I don't know where Charlene's up and gone

Last I know she said that she was pregnant

A month ago last night I could be wrong

I sell myself for opium here nightly

My pride my self control my worth are gone

I always thought I was a stronger person

Now I know that I was always wrong

The moon seeks to touch me from a million miles away

She reaches down and holds me as my senses go away

She cradles me caresses me and pushes me away

Day and night and day and night and day and night and day

Self hatred flows through me like a virus

Send one in so I can earn my pay

This one here she seems a bit familiar

Do what you want to me and go away

Where am I I can't stand the pain please take my life

I'm wracked and vomit stained please kill me you can use my knife

Haze and pain I'm doubled over where the hell am I

I open my eyes see Charlene's face staring into mine

I eat a mango food it seems so strange to me

I'm on an island paradise I think that I can't see

Charlene takes my hand and says we need no longer run

I look into my arms and see I'm holding my new son

My teeth feel funny and I'm alone

And I am writhing white with foam

Can't restore it averagely

I can't freeze it illogically

I can't take it it takes me

I can't pay it it grates me

I can't place it instantly

I can't take it reverently

It's it's own thing it's in my bones

It's in my mind supine and prone

Squirming wrongly fisting toes

Just ain't swtopping on it goes

chorus

I can't remember what it was like

How food tasted and what was right

Either way now It's been too long

Feeling slack now but not for long

chorus

Consequence smolders and trembles

She fills my lungs

Disappears when I lose reality

Maybe choke on my tongue

Let's rock let's roll

It feels so good to give in

Reason is a tumor

Live for now

Because tomorrow is a rumor

Let's rock let's roll

Dyin' can't be too bad

'Cause life is sweet sweet death

Cry havoc and surrender

With a halting breath

Let's rock let's roll

The scene is the Chinese island of Chin Pau. Billy's defeated, Johnny's disappeared, and Troubadour has kidnapped Charlene. We slow fade to an unreadable Comanche warrior lounging in an opium den in the far east, discarded, disavowed, relinquished, abandoned...trapped.
