lyrics

Whistle in the wind

lord knows where I been

its like trying to see in the dark



living in and out of sin

again and again

at least I know when satan is playing his part

dont bogart that wine

shit, you know the nights never end



but I must have been blind

to leave it all behind

and know i'd never be coming back here again



every place looks the same

for a man with name



counting up the change

and washing the stains

the little memories of all the nights gone past



driving in the rain

i'm going insane

it's all just one big pain in my ass



loud and obscene

and far from clean

it's nowhere is where we are all bound



if the grass was green

I would have stayed in eugene

but I think i'd rather be driving around



but every place looks the same

for a man with no name
