Michael On Fire: Music

Cadillac Ranch

(Michael On Fire)

Cadillac Ranch

On the 45th day of and endless ride
a lot of strength and a lot of pride
lost my brakes on the Great Divide
saw the chupacabra on the mountain side

The lake is dry no ammo in the gun
hot as hell in the Texas sun
the luxury of dreaming, the time to think
a wonderful life living on the brink

Chorus:

came to town in the blistering heat
ain't no people but the ghosts are sweet
sitting by the river on a broken branch
take me back to the Cadillac Ranch

Tired of standing I need a chair
need some room, need some air
ain't real pretty but I still have hair
ain't in style who the hell cares

Chorus

Bridge:  just last week I took a dive
             off a big tall building floor 25
             on my way down I thought I might die
             then and there I started to fly

Chorus

I'm a hand shaker not a fist toucher
I'm a truth teller not a small talker
I'm a deep hugger not a sleep walker
I'm a true feeler I'm a self-healer

Chorus
