Breakneck Speed lyrics

The season has come
The season has come
When nothing gets done
When nothing gets done
Save copycat killin'
Save copycat killin'

Away from windows
Away from windows
Asleep on the floor
Asleep on the floor
The wheel of misfortune spins in the yard
The wheel of misfortune spins in the yard

And by the way
And by the way
And by the way
And by the way
I'm . . .
I'm . . .
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
I'm almost moving breakneck speed
I'm almost moving breakneck speed

Good news is no news
Good news is no news
The whole things comes down
The whole things comes down
To character murder
To character murder

Cattle are driven
Cattle are driven
To market or prison
To market or prison
Hindsight a genius lost in the blood
Hindsight a genius lost in the blood

And by the way
And by the way
And by the way
And by the way
I'm . . .
I'm . . .
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
(and) by the way
I'm almost moving breakneck speed
I'm almost moving breakneck speed

Tip my hat
Tip my hat
And then I'm good as gone
And then I'm good as gone
I'm good and ready
I'm good and ready
Beside myself - breakneck speed
Beside myself - breakneck speed

Stretch my reach
Stretch my reach
You know I'd steal the shoes
You know I'd steal the shoes
Right off a dead man's feet
Right off a dead man's feet
Beside myself - breakneck speed
Beside myself - breakneck speed
