Ahead of the Curve, Behind the Times

lyrics

I know Little Big Man
We ride for sunrise at midnight
Gettin wasted on the straight and narrow
Sky high on the low life
I’ve got seven devils lookin over my left shoulder
and one angel on my right
I’m ahead of the curve and behind the times

Dive through the din into her voice
She sinks her teeth into my sin
A peacekeeping missile into her prison cell
A heat seeker hit cold skin
She tells me ‘Burn slow’
I own the side roads
but I can’t read her signs
Faster she purrs, steeper we climb
Ahead of the curve and behind the times

Ahead of the curve and behind the times
I’m ahead of the game, but I stepped over the line
Baby don’t tell me what your dreams are
I’m still workin on mine…
I’m ahead of the curve and behind the times

The view from the peak is a lonely panorama
in the valley everything’s lookin up
I should go back to burning bridges
Get back to pluckin rhymes
I’ll be at one with the earth when I nap in the dirt
Bury my like a talent to find…
Step on a nerve, don’t smother the shine
Get ahead of the curve and behind the times

I’m ahead of the curve and behind the times
I’m ahead of the game, but I stepped over the line
Baby please tell me what your dreams are
I’ll quit workin on mine

You get your turn
Me? I resign

Ahead of the curve and behind the times
I’m ahead of the curve and behind the times
Ahead of the curve and behind the times
I’m ahead of the curve and behind the times
