  1. Wild Wild East

From the recording Scratches and Dust

Lyrics

There is a place filled with the enlightened
There is a place where hostility has ceased
There is a place where no one is frightened
And then there is the Wild Wild East
Two thousand miles from the tombstones of Texas
Two thousand years after the final feast
Two thousand presidents are driving a Lexus
Down the highway to heaven through the Wild Wild East
 
Millions of cars on thousands of highways
Sounds of Metallica and Judas Priest
You see the signs say "Welcome to Jersey"
They should say "Welcome to the Wild Wild East"
 
Out on the streets are the gasoline cowboys
Quick on the draw with wheels gassed and greased
Licensed to kill on a prairie of pavement
A romance of rage they call the Wild Wild East
 
Women in furs and five-inch spike heels
Men wearing sharkskin suits with trousers creased
Reading their lines in the Court of Appeals
Justice is peeking in the Wild Wild East
 
Millions of cars on thousands of highways
Sounds of Metallic and Judas Priest
You see the signs say "Welcome to Jersey"
They should say "Welcome to the Wild Wild East"
 
At night all the stars play casinos and bars
As the midnight masqueraders take their seats
And in the morning their prayers and their cries and their laughter
Are drowned by the sounds on the street
 
Where thick perfume is always in fashion
Where every chemical has been released
Where nothing's left to put all the trash in
Take a deep breath, you're in the Wild Wild East
 
Millions of cars on thousands of highways
Sounds of Metallica and Judas Priest
You see the signs say "Welcome to Jersey"
They should say "Welcome to the Wild Wild East"
Millions of cars on thousands of highways
Cities that slumber like a restless beast
You see the signs say "Welcome to Jersey"
They should say "Welcome to the Wild Wild East"
