State Poker

White knuckles on the steering wheel
Cop car lights flashing right behind me
Stopped on the side of the road
My kite's turned into a heavy dagger
Night sky, a flashlight and a knock on the window

Evening officer, what's the problem?
Step out of the bus, I've got some questions
Bring it on, I'll answer every one of them
I'm just a friendly Canadian
Call me Dave and what's your name again?

Oh, I've pilled up poker chips
Taking my chances with the law
Oh, you see my habbit
I'm all in to win

Where are you from? What brings you here?
Give me the info so you can't disappear
I came here for the endless horizon
Spent three days in the sea and the sun
And I'm on my way to climb a mountain

They leave and take their time
While I'm sitting here writing rhymes
They return licence in hand
Handed back to a free man
You be on your way son, goodnight

Oh, I've pilled up poker chips
Taking my chances with the law
Oh, you see my habbit
Gotta fly, you know I've got this

Oh, I've pilled up poker chips
Taking my chances with the law
Oh, you see my habbit
I'm all in to win
