Riding On Rims

Pale and bare cold as winter
All the blood from my face
Holding tight as you turn and
You begin to walk away

Pour the night into morning
No more time and no excuse
Stomach turns like an engine
Two flat tires instead of shoes

And I’m riding on rims my body shakes
I’m riding on rims there ain’t no brakes
Sign after sign of all my sins
But I’m doing fine ignoring them
Yeah I’m gonna’ find out how much I can take
Riding on rims

FM dial after midnight
Sixteen stations just for me
Loud and fast through the darkness
Aimless chase in this machine

And I’m riding on rims my body shakes
I’m riding on rims there ain’t no brakes
Sign after sign of all my sins
But I’m doing fine ignoring them
Yeah I’m gonna’ find out how much I can take
Riding on rims

When the tank is finally empty
And even I can’t deny the end
Lift my thumb and walk the highway
Faith is such a fickle friend
