Come Out Ahead

Look at our radios...
They?re all busted up
The trunk?s wide open.
Where is my gun?

You sucked this cigarette
And there?s no ashes to the ground.
But, each time I level this dark sky
It?s raining mud.

Well try just a little before it?s dead to bring the car ahead.
It?s late and sure that I?ll come out a winner--
Push it just a little to come out ahead
And taper it off to what you said...
Or do you want to be a quitter?

This maximum limit
We?ve been speeding for miles...
There?s no law in it:
There?ll be no child.

Its such an attraction
To push past the fraction...of a mile
And when your heart beats faster
You know the adrenaline smiles.

Well we?ve come so close to bring the most;
Meaning what I said:
There is no pride that never dies in losers.
Well we?ve come the closest we?ve come so far
Ain?t nothing gonna wreck this car
So do you want this foreclosure...for closure?
