Written by Aaron Ross. Aaron is one of our favorite young songwriters. He lives in California and has recorded several great albums. Our favorite is The Hallelujah Side which is where this song comes from.


Me and Jane are one and the same we are one and the same tonight
She wears her hair in a bow I know her intensions are right
And her highest goal at least as I'm told it pertains to theory of flight
Oh but I am undone that's why I asked her not to come
I've been sad but I'm not the only one

We sit in the shadows we are teasin' the fire we are teasin' the fire and the light
And the king and the queen are parading around as if they own the night
And I exclaim "I could never be the same, I never could be fake if I tried!"
Well, the queen starts to hum, says, "Put my poison in my rum."
She's been high but she's not the only one

The rich and the poor they are one and the same they are one and the same with time
And the business men are humping the neon signs they are humping neon signs with delight
And I said to my friend, "Have you ever seen such a thing?"
He said, "If I were Hemmingway I'd write."
Oh, but he would not heed he must have had something up his sleeve
Oh he once was free but now he's just like me

The street smells like semen the air is a demon and it's making a firey blow
And I smell tobacco it's curlin' and streamin' I'm dreamin' I'm dreamin I didn't know
That fewer and fewer lists I believe in and some say it dies with the flow
Oh, but I, I am carnal and this will all come and pass tomorrow
I've been sad but it's only self pity / sorrow

Me and Jane we turn in the same way we turn in the same way we came
On her head is a crown she moves me with pain I am stuck on her like a stain
She says life is a highway it's a wide open highway and you're traffic if you don't change lanes
That's why I asked her to stay she said "That's something I thought you would never say"
She is pharmaceutical but hey, that's okay
