    No free ride (The low down on the sky highs)

    You might think that you've got a free ride, That your words really can turn the tide
    But there's one thing way beyond doubt
    There ain't no limo waiting outside
    No food on the table, a roof that's unstable, and there ain't no car on the drive

    I once thought that we had a good chance, Of making moves that would just let us dance
    But one thing is way beyond me
    This ain't no big moneyed fine romance
    If you think there's a free lunch, girl I've got a real hunch, you ain't given up on chance

    We once gave it up as our lot, We avoid the haves and haves not
    But you know, it's way beyond doubt
    We tried to give our true best shot
    Cos things are getting tight, I don't sleep too good at night, we don't have an awful lot

    Nowhere to drive and nothing to drive in
    No free ride and nothing to drive

    The cash it's not piling, the bills still sky-highing. It really just ain't happenin'
    There's no food on the table, the roof it's unstable, but it still ain't happenin', no ma'am
    If you think there's a free lunch, girl I've got a real hunch, it just ain't happenin'

    I always thought that we'd make it some time, knead the dough for the bills we would find
    But, there's one thing I just have to say
    There's still no limo waiting outside
    If you think there's a free lunch, girl got on a real hunch, you'll hate being cut down to size

    You might think you got a free ride, that your words really could turn the tide
    But, there's one thing that's way beyond doubt
    There really ain't no limo outside
    We've got no food on the table and a roof that's unstable
    And, there ain't no car on the drive, no
    There' ain't no car on the drive, no, no, no
    There' ain't no car on the drive, ain't no car on the drive

    Words and Music by David Bradley
    Yours truly on vocals, solo electric guitar and bass with some saxy horn samples and drum loops.
