Stiff Lips

out here we laugh out loud for the home folks
some of them twisting in the wind

tight jeans and raindrops on a metal roof
thought the place took plastic

but she would only take cash
forked over the bills and a few coins

almost worthless 'cept for slots
wished I'd brought my shades

wanna hide my eyes from the truth
expressions muted and upper lips stiff

lunatics surround the fire pit
and a harmonica blows
