Stoplight Serenade. by Scott Thomas Outlar



I’ve seen a lot of wrecks lately
I’ve seen a lot of wars lately
Seen a lot of this vs. that
in the streets
Seen a lot of people
spitting in each other’s faces

whole lot of luck
with that doing ya
one lick of good
in the end

I’ve seen a lot of rage lately
Seen a lot of lowdown, cutthroat, coldhearted, dirty tricks
Seen a lot of swine rolling around in their own slop

whole lot of fun that’s gonna be
when they start driving those pigs
right back into the sea

Yeah, I’ve seen a lot of wrecks lately
Hell, I’ve watched a lot of wars
on my flat screen, HD, color TV

Yee haw
