A Piece of Me

from Steel & Shade by Halloween Jack



Strapped in got a head full of gin
I got myself a ride on home
Moving slow yet I have to go
But I don’t wanna go

Sun fried now I ain’t so shy of the desert heat
Poached eggs don’t help my head
Man I’m easily led

Stopped by to see some airplane guy
Shot down in Vietnam, he said
It ain’t much fun when your Huey is done
In the jungle son

We looked in on the king, hoping he could sing
But he wasn’t home
When Priscilla was queen of the desert scene
Well that’s alright mama if I can dream

Cause we’re hitting the road to fly from the angels
Every person, every place seems to tell a tale
And now, it’s time to leave
Trust me, I’ve left a piece of me

Now I’m stuck on ten, for time and again
To the stereo waves
I’m transported to a place with a Hollywood face
Just with added bass

As the road unwinds, I feel so inclined
To reminisce
From Cathedral City, to ladies so pretty
Man, to leave seems such a pity

LA’s such a brute and bitch to commute
Yet has a quality

Built on reputation, a film star location, communication for a nation, a subject for quotation, a place for aspiration, fake plastic admiration

From the waitress I gave such a generous tip, to the Tesla driver who’s oh so hip. To the scenic lands with the burnt rust sand. And two fine ladies looking so grand. From the Mexican kids looking for a blunt and the guy from LA with so much front.

In Salvation, such elation mixed with horror trepitdation
How we danced, how we pranced, how our lives were enhanced

They got a piece of me
