Shandy was somebody's daughter
Drivin' to somethin' insane
They busted her crossin' the border
Swift as a sniff of cocaine

All she could pay was attention
So all they could take was her time
Proving an ounce of possession
Ain't worth a piece of your mind

'Cause nightmares are somebody's daydreams
Daydreams are somebody's lies
Lies ain't no harder than tellin' the truth
Truth is the perfect disguise

Locked in [Incomprehensible] gold handle bathroom
Martin was changing his mind
Sheddin' his humble pretensions
One careful toke at a time

And wiping the mask off the man in the mirror
Who really was 'Billy the Kid'
Smilin' at somebody dyin'
For somethin' that he never did

'Cause nightmares are somebody's daydreams
Daydreams are somebody's lies
Lies ain't no harder than tellin' the truth
Truth is the perfect disguise

Soon as he sat down beside her
Shining like Saturday night
Shandy was his for the savin'
Sweet as she looked in the light

And maybe they moved from the bar to the bedroom
Maybe, just stood there instead
Martin woke up wet and screamin'
Dreamin' of blood on the bed

'Cause nightmares are somebody's daydreams
Daydreams are somebody's lies
Lies ain't no harder than tellin' the truth
Truth is the perfect disguise
