lyrics

there's an empty parking lot at the edge of the desert
it's the saddest place you've ever seen
my baby likes to go with a bottle and a gun
and empty a couple of magazines

ain't it just like Victorville to spend our every dime
to build a fast train out of town
and a big old parking lot for the folks who want to ride
but it's just losers like me that hang around

I don't know if I'm asleep or dead, buzzards circle overhead
shotgun shells are scattered on the ground
in Victorville it looks like rain but I got a ticket for the bullet train
so tell my baby I'm Vegas-bound

I know Victorville like I know my favorite song
there's no more mysteries for me here
it used to fit me fine, oh I used to wear it well
but it's getting smaller every year

I guess there comes a time when everything you know
just ain't enough to get you through
and everything you want, well it's just a little more
than everything in front of you

I don't know if I'm asleep or dead, buzzards circle overhead
shotgun shells are scattered on the ground
in Victorville it looks like rain, but I got a ticket for the bullet train
so tell my baby I'm Vegas-bound
