Obsession Road

It was after the heartache
before payments were owed
at the motel check in
out on Obsession Road
The neon sign flickered
it was set to explode
above the one-way street
they call Obsession Road

Around all the bluffing
it got hard not to fear
They thanked you for nothing
time to do or disappear

You were a-doer-a-doer
a doer doin’ you
You were doin’ all the doers
an’ the doers were doin’ too

The bit room went spinning
one blue light still glowed
Money said you were trapped
along Obsession Road

Drunks dropped by to kill Time
Time ran to implode
there’s no telling who died
up by Obsession Road
Around all the bluffing
it got hard not to fear
They thanked you for nothing
time to do or disappear

You were a-doer-a-doer
a doer doin’ you
You were doin’ all the doers
an’ the doers were doin’ too

How many ghosts do you have in your fam’ly?
How many lies do you have in your head?
How many foes do you have when you’re livin’?
How many friends do you have when you’re dead?

The boardwalk went shaky
teeth began to corrode
what route had been taken
near Obsession Road

Folks heard constant screaming
and the torture that flowed
soul searching was done
down by Obsession Road

Around all the bluffing
it got hard not to fear
They thanked you for nothing
time to do or disappear

You were a-doer-a-doer
a doer doin’ you
You were doin’ all the doers
an’ the doers were doin’ too

You were doin’ all the doers
an’ the doers were doin’ too

Time won't listen
Time won't lie
Time won't speak
and Time won't die ...
