I quit, I quit, I've had just about enough of this shit,

I'm done, it's no fun, I can't take any more life on the run,


I'm gonna lose, myself like lightning,

And I don't care, what they'll be writing,

I've read the tea leaves, the Tarot cards, and all the clues,

I'm gonna roll, I've got a notion, I'll disappear, in an explosion,

I'm at the point, to ditch this joint, I gotta choose


I'm out, no doubt, it's enough to eke a living out,

No way, call it a day, there ain't a whole lot more I can say,


I can't ingest, more of this potion,

I'm gonna sail, across the ocean, so wish me luck, it's just too much,

for me to keep,

I'm gonna roll, on down the highway, can't find a way, to do it my way,

To paraphrase, too many days, it got too steep


I'm gonna head, to the horizon, for a time,

I'm gonna lose, these heavy blues, see the sun shine,

I'm gonna ditch, this broken city, I’ve made the call,

Yeah it’s been tough, but I did enough, after all,

Yeah it’s been tough, but I did enough, after all
