Pushing Sixty

the whore of heaven and the prince of pain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
went to bed crazy and woke up sane
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane

all over her clothes
there were lilacs and roses
and i just stopped to smell them
isn't that what you're 'sposed to do
isn't that what you're 'sposed to do
karen i broke down for you
karen i broke down

to an age of reason from an age of rain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
they shook & trembled like a hurricane
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
out their bodies and down the drain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane

karen i broke down for you
karen i broke down

in the gutter
where all the spirits meet
it sounds like a river
but it smells like your feet
and deep in the bushes
where all the lovers run
it looks like a hassle
but it tastes like your tongue

now you can read my lips or pick my brain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
wrap my heart in cellophane
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
but i've been in heaven and i've been in pain
and they're both eternal and they're both profane

all over her clothes
there were lilacs and roses
and i just stopped to smell them
isn't that what you're 'sposed to do
isn't that what you're 'sposed to do
karen i broke down for you
karen i broke down for you
karen i broke down

he was sleazy, she was vain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
lyin' in the path of a runaway train
if you cut the track then you cannot complain
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
pushing 60 in the breakdown lane
