Cage the Elephant – Ain’t no Rest for the Wicked

This song is played on my favourite radio station – FM4 (nice pronounciation in German – FM fear 😉 ). ‘Ain’t no Rest for the Wicked’ is the work of Cage the Elephant a US band from Kentucky. It’s also the first single of their debut album ‘Cage the Elephant’ (released on June 23rd 2008).

i was walking down the street when out the corner of my eye, i saw a pretty little thing approaching me.
she said i never seen a man, who looks so all alone, could you use a little company?
if you pay the right price, your evening will be nice, or you can go and send me on my way, i said your such a sweet young thing, why’d you do this to yourself?
she looked at me and this is what she said.

there aint no rest for the wicked, money dont grow on trees, i got bills to pay, i got mouths to feed, there aint nothing in this world for free.
i know i cant slow down, i cant hold back though you know i wish i could, oh no there aint no rest for the wicked, until we close our eyes for good.

not even 15 minutes later, after walking down the street, when i saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight, then he swept up from behind, put a gun up to my head, he made it clear he wasnt looking for a fight, he said give me all you’ve got, i want your money not your life, if you try to make a move i wont think twice, i told him you can have my cash, but first you know ive got to ask, what made you want to live this kind of life?

he said there aint no rest for the wicked, money dont grow on trees, i got bills to pay i got mouths to feed aint nothing in this world for free.
i know i cant slow down, i cant hold back though you know i wish i could oh no there aint no rest for the wicked, until we close our eyes for good.

now a couple hours past, and i was sitting in my house, the day was winding down and coming to an end, so i turned on the tv, and flipped it over to the news, and what i saw i almost couldnt comprehend, i saw a preacher manin cuffs taking money from the church, he stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills but even still i cant say much cause i know were all the same, oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills.

you know there aint no rest for the wicked, money dont grow on trees, we got bills to pay we got mouths to feed aint nothing in this world for free.
we cant slow down, we cant hold back though you know we wish we could. you no there aint no rest for the wicked, until we close our eyes for good.
