Urge Overkill - The Mistake Lyrics

Traveling across the USA,
It's hard sometimes to keep it together.
Nothing but the songs that you play
And a couple kids believing your sound.
Living's just this social disease
So you, you took it straight to the highway.
Roll one up and do as you please,
Just be certain not to fall with the wrong kind of crowd.

Be extra careful when you cross,
'Cause static comes from every erection.
Find some one or you'll be lost
And you're just the kind who's liable to never be found.
Think of you whenever it rains
And I, I hear your song on the jukebox.
Jesus don't you know it's a shame
That there really isn't any like you left around.

Be careful what you take,
You've got a lot at stake,
More than you'll ever know.
Beware the overdose,
Beware the overdose.

Be careful what you take,
You've got so much at stake,
It's stronger than you know.
Beware the overdose.

In the USA
You'll never find the time for slackin',
Never gonna make it today
Until you finally exit the dragon.

Look inside, inside my soul,
There's a catchy song, a catchy song,
It's coming through the radio.
There's a certain song, a certain song.
Stuck inside my soul,
It's a catchy song; it's number one,
Too bad you had overdosed.

  1. John Burns

    Blackie!! I get a Neil Young sort of vibe from his voice here. Love it, have this double-LP.

  2. Big Ulf

    Kudos to Blackie O - do you know if he's recording music as Rowan John these days? Saw some tracks on YouTube and the guy kind of looks like him...electronicky.

  3. Michael Pearlman

    An under-appreciated gem, one of the best songs they ever recorded.

  4. Ethan Gallagher-Thomas

    Livings just a social disease

  5. The Birds Of Ontario

    Yes it's Blackie!

  6. Instructions Ink

    still brings a tear to my eye ... thanks Nash & king !

    The Birds Of Ontario

    Instructions Ink

    thank you Blackie too !!! are you saying its Blackie singing or you are Blackie ??? i always thought this was Nash's voice

  10. MrsFish7

    ...one of my favourite songs ever!!....if I was at a UO show and Blackie jumped up on the stage and did this one with them....I think I'd possibly dye a happy kipper..

    John Burns

    I hate to say it but that doesn't seem likely seeing as how Blackie got caught with heroin when UO were on the road in support of this record
