Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ron Harrity

lyrics

The insides of the rubber band
They stretch out all the glass to sand
They shake the arms off helping hands
They take the wheel and make demands, they say

You volunteer firefighters you can only burn it down
The Sullen Lamplighters they visit from the shadow towns
And all the insiders they make that disapproving sound
You skeleton riders you're gonna ride it
straight into the ground

The conductor wires the electrical fires
to a burning bag of garbage and the radial tires
They roll through the holes in all the cynical liars
who fake the grandstanding that a workweek requires, they say

You volunteer firefighters you can only burn it down
The Sullen Lamplighters they visit from the shadow towns
And all the insiders they make that disapproving sound
You skeleton riders you're gonna ride it
straight into the ground
