lyrics

I’m taking it easy
There’s nothing to do
The blood on the freeway
Isn't yours

I was wanted for murder
But fate set me free
When something big happens
It’s just a little misdeed

The judge found me guilty
And I was locked, on my way
But then the bus started shaking
On the open highway

The bruises and black eyes
I’ve already seen
My family abuses
From a life that has been

I’m walking the freeway
And I will walk till the end
Right into the ocean
It was always my plan

The judge found me guilty
And I was locked, on my way
But then the sky started shaking
O the open highway

Give me a chance
Life is the strangest romance
With good luck and bad
The city is sad
But thanks for looking out for me

I’m taking it easy
There’s nothing to do
The cops on the freeway
Are drinking beer

I should be in prison
Wasting away
But oh my the mercy
Of this beautiful day

Give me a chance
Life is the strangest romance
With good luck and bad
The city is sad
But things are looking up for me

I’m taking it easy
