  1. On the Skids

From the recording Toiling in Obscurity

Lyrics

Quiet little town in which I live
Asked more from me than I could give
Everything used to go so nice
Now we’re all wrapped up in sin and vice
 
And though I should have seen it happen
It did not concern me
And now the noose is tightened
Had to eventually
 
Chorus:
I’m on the Skids, I’m on the Skids
I lost my will to live
Thank God I don’t have kids
I just want to call it quits
Shut my lids, and say goodbye
 
First you left me all alone
Then the whole damn town called in my loans
Closed in slowly, I can’t breathe
And I got no tricks left up my sleeve
 
And though I should have seen it happen
It did not concern me
And now the noose is tightened
Had to eventually
 
Chorus
 
My youth is gone, it left with you
My self-respect and my TV too
Watching pages turn too fast
More black squares on a checkered past
 
 
And though I should have seen it happen
It did not concern me
And now the noose is tightened
Had to eventually
 
Chorus
