​Gridlock!

This song is by Electric Six and appears on the album Heartbeats And Brainwaves (2011).

Gridlock!
Look what you did, look what you did
You locked up the grid, locked up the grid
You got the whole world flippin' its lid
Torture is something we do at night for fun
You can't feel my burger in your bun
And thank god, I'm not the only one
Who's feelin' so alone
Waiting patiently for the cyclone
I will call you on the phone
And turn your bleeding heart to stone
And I ain't playin' no joker poker
I ain't playin' no joker poker
I ain't playin' no joker... poker

Sometimes in a lifetime of lies
Bloody tears are the tears she cries
And are you jokin' with your tape recorder
You were sent here to restore the order
And give us just one more moment of sanity

Science
Is just a suspension of belief
A way to explain away the grief
And every policeman needs a chief

Gridlock!
Look what you did, look what you did,
You locked up the grid, locked up the grid
You know you gotta, gotta keep your love
Hid from all those roguish thieves
Who live to kneecap knobby knees
Who cares what anyone here believes
I wear my hearts on rayon sleeves

And I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker poker
I ain't playing no joker... poker

One night, in nightlife so white
The vampiress, she, takes a bite
She wallows in her delight
As you lose your will to fight
The news today was a real shocker
You're sitting down but you're off your rocker
Just another prisoner of fantasy

I ain't playin' no joker poker, no joker poker
I ain't playin' no joker poker, no joker poker
I ain't playin' no joker poker, no joker poker
I ain't playin' no joker poker, no joker poker
Poker, no joker poker, poker
Poker, no joker poker, poker
Poker, no joker poker, poker
