Lyrics

Gasoline Alley

They’re bellowing ash from their smoke stack religion
Black as Folgers coffee ‘n straight from hell’s kitchen
Chokin’ on the exhaustive syllables ‘n sounds
And exhale a sigh as I roll my eyes around

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions
But this barren stretch of highway is littered with their wreckage
As their shadow reads like poetry rotting at your feet
Pollute the atmosphere and the air that we all breathe, can’t you see, if you…

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across find your way
Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation reigns
Cut across gasoline alley, cut across save your life
Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation lies

The moon floats like a pearl in a sky as black as ink
Like a lonely flare that cuts the night above a blacktop sea
As the buzzards start circlin’ right above your head
Cos’ there ain’t no signs of life they’ll even take you dead, so check your head … before you…

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across find your way
Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation reigns
Cut across gasoline alley, cut across save your life
Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation lies
Salvation is a lie
