Far from the evergreen of old Assam Far from the rainfall on the trails of old Saigon straight from the poster town of scorn and ritz To bring you the wilder side of gold and glitz
But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind They promised just to pet you, but don't you let them get you Away, away, away Under the heat of the southwest sun
Took to the spotlight like a diamond ring Came from the woodwork and the hopes they might Redeem themselves from poor decisions to win big
But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind Strategize to maim you, but don't you let them tame you You're far too pure and bold To suffer the strain of the pain that's old.
I don't wanna be kept, I don't wanna be caged, I don't wanna be damned oh hell I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be saved, I don't wanna be S.O.L. Give me rolling hills so tonight can be the night that I send them up a thousand thrills Can you cut me some slack, Cause I don't wanna go back, I want the new day and age
Come on girls and boys, everyone make some noise!
Run neon tiger there's a price on your head They'll put you down and cut you, I'll never let them touch you Away, away, away Oh I'm gonna need a neon tiger roar
Under the heat of Under the heat of Under the heat of the southwest sun
