CUT AND RUN

Introduction by Ron Asheton
“There was a lot of…always hassles about…Turn those amps down!
And to us the volume was the spirit of the music, to play clean and quiet You couldn’t get into it!”

Cut and run,
It’s on.
You arrogant slave.
You think you’re so strong,
You can’t afford the pay.
So I jump through dreams that you wanted to see,
You’re soldier can’t wait for fun to appear.
Cut and run,
The square circus is on the same track today,
And not going away.
We gonna take off the cable,
We’ve gone all insane on the way though,
It all goes in cycles they say though,
The psycho’s are teaching the way though.
Cut and run,
If I take this gun and say who today can take this gun away?
And cut through ten miles of cuts and just laugh,
And talk to dream that we spoke of when young,
Cut and run,
They can’t search the sun,
Or be involved today with games that I play,
But you can,
And you must begin now to see,
The plan is down,
And ready to efface any fear,
Cut and run,
And climb on the jet,
No program in the way,
To find you today.
We gonna take off the cable,
We’ve gone all insane on the way though,
It all goes in cycles they say though,
The psycho’s are teaching the way too.
