Mystery Limousine

about

Written in the early-'90s, but not recorded until 2009, and then only because the guys all found themselves in NYC at the same time and felt like recording something.

lyrics

MYSTERY LIMOUSINE

Gliding down the street
Gliding down from heaven
Big black limousine
Created by the gods

Who's inside?

Gleaming metal
Three blocks long
And five blocks wide
Mystery limousine

You can look
And you can dream
But you can't ride
Mystery limousine

Driver's got sunglasses
I bought a pair just like him
Now my eyes are
just like limo windows

Who's inside?

Gleaming metal
Three blocks long
And five blocks wide
Mystery limousine

Police escort
Stopping traffic
Naked girls astride
Mystery limousine

Driver picked up a hitchhiker
They found him by the side of the road
His twisted, broken body
In a pool of red, red blood
Gravel glass and black paint
Unseeing open eyes

Who's inside?

Gleaming metal
Three blocks long
And five blocks wide
Mystery limousine

Police escort
Stopping traffic
Naked girls astride
Mystery limousine
