Pressure Machine


(Alright, well, I'm 26 so I've lived here for 26 years
I married my high school sweetheart
So we've been marri—
we've been together 11 years
Hm, I don't really travel much so I've just been here, haha

Uh, I'm, I'm busy John, you'll have to wait!
Uh, my little brother, he moved into the community
And they tried to tape him to a flagpole
or a tree up at the high school
So if you don't fit their mold—

Just a nice, small community
Everybody knows everybody
Good place to live and to raise kids
We'll be here forever, so
Yeah, it's a good area)

I was born right here in Zion, God's own son
His Holy Ghost stories and bloodshed never scared me none
While they bowed their heads on Sunday
I cut out through the hedges and fields
Where the light could place its hands on my head
In the west hills

Free in the west hills
Free in the west hills

She's got two full-grown children, one still on the vine
And once I got to know him I loved him like he was mine
Some nights we drive up the mouth of the canyon
On hillbilly heroin pills
We get out and watch the sunset
Peaceful and still

And free in the west hills
Free in the west hills

When the sheriff kicked my door down
I was sleeping in my own bed
And the mess I got caught up in
Rained hard down on my head
They got me for possession of them hillbilly heroin pills
Enough to kill the horses that run free in the west hills
They got me for possession of enough
To kill the horses that run

Free in the west hills
Free in the west hills

If this life was meant for proving
I could use more years to live
But fifteen in a guardhouse
That's more than I'm willing to give
And if there really is a judgement
When He pulls my chart
He'll reject my actions
But He will know my heart
And he'll prepare a place for me
Where happiness instills
And the light puts its loving hands on my head
Free in the west hills
They got me for possession of enough
To kill the horses that run

Free in the west hills
Free in the west hills
Free, free in the west hills, in the west hills, in the west hills
