No Parents

I got a freeway view
Behind the curtains 
Piano sounds like broken glass
I can see the darkness from the bed
They keep banging away at the door
But I won't let them in
What I am is what I am
They want philosophy

Out by the freeway we drink beer
Under the halogen lights
Watching the trucks roll by
Wishing we could be Bobby McGee
Bandana and all
But we're just kids
Chucked in to deep
No place to sleep.

No parents.
No life.
Just in life to deep.
