    2 - Intro
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Ah, Full Throttle. One of the first games to include a full Rock and 
    Roll sound track produced by a rather kick ass band, the Gone Jackals. 
    
    This document contains the lyrics of the songs from Full Throttle, and
    while there were many other tracks in the game, none of them either
    had lyrics, or were short clips before the lyrics. Therefore those
    songs are not included here.

    3 - Legacy
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Legacy" by the Gone Jackals
      Plays during the intro
    
    
    December '61
    my Dad's wages light 
    Still on that salary 
    we, all four, could sleep tight 
    
    Right now if you drank from 
    that very same well 
    you'd need a run of luck 
    to score a bed in a trick hotel 
    
    Is this the legacy of 
    too much for too few that I see
    The kind of legacy that's 
    tossin' some good men to their knees
     
    The Great Society's 
    maligned concrete cage 
    sits dead and vacant now  
    at least it kept out rain
     
    With all those corners cut 
    the cracks grow wide and near 
    I heard some cash was saved 
    but where it's gone ain't clear 
    
    Who goes down next I don't know 
    I don't know nothin' 
    anymore Tomorrow's legacy that's 
    layin' in state awaits reprieve 
    
    I always thought that when a man goes down 
    you do your best to pick him up 
    But how can the milk of kindness trickle down 
    when it's syphoned off and cheats the cup
     
    =======================================================================
    4 - Born bad
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Born bad" by the Gone Jackals
      Plays during the ending credits
    
    
    That's the way it begins 
    you try to behave 
    yeah, you try to fit in 
    
    But when you rise and stand 
    you find a lock step march  
    no room for jazz 
    
    Born bad 
    with a slight-o-hand 
    I go from jam to jam 
    with a crash, boom, bam 
    
    Born bad 
    I dodge a sucker punch 
    and drop a bomb, like Liston 
    on an animal hunch 
    
    I've been down 
    Yeah, I've spent some time downtown 
    I've covered sacred ground 
    soft and slow and round 
    
    I gave up 
    Yeah, I learned to give it up, 
    thinkin' that's the final cut 
    But it turns out I was wrong 
    
    Born bad  
    that's the way it began 
    stuffed a young pink lung 
    down a rank glue bag 
    
    Born bad 
    this is where it all lands 
    for a bull headed, corner hangin' 
    problem child man 
    
    I grew hard
    Over time my scars toughed up 
    When gettin' even just wasn't enough, 
    I had to choke my conscience off 
    
    I've come far 
    Yeah, I had to travel far 
    Peel through layers sick and raw 
    just to taste and touch once more 
    
    Born bad  
    like a synchro mesh shift 
    that's stuck in third 
    just smokes and burns 
    
    Born bad  
    with a cig-hangin' lip 
    A talk back baby on a 
    star-crossed ship
     
    =======================================================================
    5 - Drop the hammer 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Drop the hammer" by the Gone Jackals
      Plays during the ending credits
    
    
    Stars spinning 
    the earth forgiving our backs 
    Pines season 
    the cool wind as we fill our chests 
    
    Babe, you dropped the hammer of love 
    you dropped the hammer of love 
    on me. 
    Babe, you dropped the hammer of love 
    don't drop the hammer of love 
    on me. 
    
    Beer flows through 
    tequila through Lucy's sequins 
    Kids snoring, 
    the boom box sings Dandelion
     
    Now you're in the stars 
    up in the autumn lights 
    A stage set the befits 
    a Chieftain of our tribe 
    Don't forget me 
    as I await my flight 
    I wish on a star 
    for you tonight 
    
    If there is 
    a way it can be arranged 
    when my time comes 
    I'd like to, again, share a stage 
    
    =======================================================================
    6 - Increased chances
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Increased chances" by Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt 
      Plays in Todd's "House", Emmet's truck, and the ending credits
    
    
    The population is greatly decreased,
    And now the odds are grealy increased,
    That I may someday get a chance to kiss your lips.
    I thank the Lord each day for the apocalypse. 
    
    Folks are mostly disfigured or dead,
    But sugar, I won't let it go to my head.
    My Mamma's face has dripped down into the dirt,
    But I'm still chasing Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt
    
    [Strange vocal sounds]
    
    =======================================================================
    7 - Legal
