Track Name: Steamroller
STEAMROLLER

Steamroller on a mission
got to plow down that old growth forest
steamroller on a mission

going to pave paradise and send it straight to hell 2x

steamrollers built the highways
poured cement on the heart of this country
steamrollers on a mission

going to pave America and send it straight to hell 2x

see the suburbs and the rubble
looks like the world is one giant strip mall
inhale the gas fumes and burn the planet
going to drill America and send it straight to hell 2x

now the governor has plans for Alaska
they're going to build a brand new pipeline
going to build it through the Arctic circle

going to paint it black and send it straight to hell
going to paint it black and send it straight to hell

Track Name: Before You Get Into My Car
Before You Get Into My Car

a long, long time ago
I hitchhiked through the south
got picked up by all kinds of folks
heard some strange things come out of their mouth

but a man in a Ford pickup truck
really took the cake
he told me his sexual history
as he drove down the interstate

he said, "now I just want to tell you you one thing son
before you get into my car
I aint queer boy but I sure is queer for the womens"

before he pulled off the road
he looked me up and down
and said "I'm really kind of an old fashioned guy
though I'm really not that old!"

and I just got to tell you one thing son
while I'm giving you this ride
I ain't queer boy but I sure is queer for the womens

my grandfather was a Cherokee and
I got magic in my hands
and my plumbing works perfect son
I got power in these glands

the womens got their panites comin' off
when they hear I've arrived in town
I aint queer boy boy
but I sure is queer for the womens
I aint queer boy boy
but I sure is queer for the womens
