lyrics

I can't tell you anything you don't wanna believe
Likewise I can't convince you you're not as evil as you seem
I can't fix you forget you
I'm merely held together with glue that's faulty
Forget me I ain't gonna waste time tellin you nothin you don't believe anyway
Roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks
You're a little rough around the edges I never want pristine
You're my muscle car shiny and sometimes you're Christine
I won't say it you know it silence don't make anything less true
Do you think I'd stay if I didn't love you
You're impossible I'm impossible
Together the possibilities
Roughneck from the wrong side
Sometimes I feel nervous the sky
For me, for me and you
Will the sky ever be blue?
Roughneck from my side of the tracks

did background vocals. It's called Tourist.
