Get Stuff

Dead in the Dust

in the shade of our mcdonalds billboard
its probly a hundred and ten
i've got dust in my teeth
i got dust in my hair
its two hundred degrees in the tent
been rollin up dust with my cigarettes
ate dust with my lucky charm
and there hasn't been rain for a long time
its hurtin a lot of the farms
but i'll sit in the dustbowl of newark ohio
wait for the show to begin
and the town's people wait for the show to be over
so Sohio will open again
cause standard oil they won't sell stuff to deadheads
and they won't let us piss in their johns
though the sign on the door says open 24 hours
i guess time will stand still til we're gone
down the street theres a place that is open
but they won't let us come thru the door
they set up the register outside
i guess they're scared that we'll mess up the floors
they sold us some ice for two dollars
i tried to trade with a bracelet i had
just tryin to help make society free
and all i did was make that cashier mad
so we'll sit in the dustbowl of newark ohio
wait for the show to begin
and the towns people wait for the show to be over
so Sohio will open again
cause standard oil
they won't sell stuff to deadheads
and they won't let us piss in their johns
though the sign on the door says open 24 hours
i guess time will stand still til we're gone
we're packed in the field for the show now
standing with thousands of freaks
and the place will smell like us for months now
we haven't seen indoor plumbing for weeks
but we'll sit in the dustbowl of newark ohio
wait for the show to begin
and the towns people wait for the show to be over
so Sohio will open again
cause standard oil
they won't sell stuff to deadheads
and they won't let us piss in their johns
though the sign on the door says
open 24 hours
i guess time will stand still til we're gone
yes, time will stand still til we're gone
