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
