run away

well I started out
at the beginning
and I have not finished yet
am not last
there was something about
about that beginning
makes me think about the time
time that has past

well the sun is now shining
and I can see clearly
and the time, it feels right
the time will be soon
now I pace myself
but still I move quickly
and the sun is now turning into the moon

run away, run away
get away from it all
run away, run away
get away from it all

and the day is now gone
and I am still running
keeping all that I need
doing all that I can
and I try to enjoy all the things that are coming
well it's all that I can do
I'm just a man

run away, run away
get away from it all
run away, run away
get away from it all




open your eyes

I know that I'm right
and all these people are wrong
but I don't want to fight
I'll think I'll just get along
cause we all know
at the end of the day
if you come home with me
it will all be ok

it will all be ok

so wake up
get out of bed
lift your mind out of your head
wake up and open your eyes
open your eyes

I keep running away
but always end up here
I keep wanting to stay
for just one more beer
and I know
at the end of the night
if you come home with me
it'll all be alright
it'll all be alright

so wake up
get out of bed
lift your mind out of your head
wake up and open your eyes
open your eyes




no way to live

your soul's in your eyes
you've got nothing to prove
your place is here and now
this is life, it's no time to lose
if it went the other way
from back to front
you would die before you live your live
well you better thank god you don't

well its no way to live
no way to go through life
no way to live

man with no body's not a man
and his soul is the same
sold no body something
that's just what I became
feel rich or feel nothing
do what you can do
feel out all your so called friends
cause they're all coming after you

well its no way to live
no way to go through life
no way to live




move on past

Do it when you want to
do it when you want to roll past
flying high all day you're flying
don't fly too fast
funny how your life goes
funny how your life don't last
do it when you want to
do it when you want to roll past

so quickly now I see
that it's always been me

take it when you to
take it when you want to roll past
walking all day you're walking
don't walk too fast
funny how your life goes
funny how it moves on past
Do it when you want to
do it when you want to roll past

so quickly now I see
that it's always been me

always just been me
quickly now I see
it's always just been me

so quickly now I see
it's always been me, always just been me



miss behavior

Alright sit down
sit down and listen
to every word i've got to say
it's not alarming
it's not uncommon
it happens almost every day
in the city, in the ghetto
in those places that you never go
I think it's better
you're sleeping in your bed
it's better that you do not know

misunderstanding all this miss behavior
misunderstanding
misunderstanding all this miss behavior
misunderstanding

and the moonshine
shining on me
warms me as I walk away
it feels good to be inside of
what I call my everyday
in the nighttime, in the darkness
in those shadows cast all in my head
think it's time to unwind
it's better if you sleep in my bed

misunderstanding all this miss behavior
misunderstanding
misunderstanding all this miss behavior
misunderstanding

take you there

rolling in, rolling out
rolling past me and I cannot hear a sound
wind moves my feet
down this long street
I've got nowhere to go

time rolling, rolling by
and I don't know why
it feels like this everyday
there's nothing that I can do for you
so I'll walk away

I'm talking in my dreams
looks so real
this is not what it seems
forget it all
let's break down the wall
lets run away

rolling in, rolling out
rolling past me and I cannot hear a sound
wind moves my feet
down this long street
I've got nowhere to go

nowhere to go

come along
follow me and I'll take you there
I swear my love
take my hand and we'll soon be there

I'll take you there

come along
follow me and I'll take you there
I swear my love
take my hand and we'll soon be there
take my hand
follow me and I'll take you there
come along
follow me and I'll take you there



let it burn

it took all day to get to the edge of the earth
we drove on borrowed time
yeah, for whatever it's worth
driving too fast
time went too damn slow
we ran on empty
with nowhere to go

let it burn
before we go
let it burn
it's all we know

it took all night
just to get back home
watch the stars fall
we lit up as we rolled
it was all good
time to take things slow
just another way
to let things go
gotta let it go

let it burn
before we go
let it burn
it's all we know

let it burn, let it burn, let it burn



rule the world

poor Billy got a sign on his back
don't got no car, he walks the railroad track
he got whatever, whatever you need
it took a long while to plant that seed

he's gonna rule the world
he's gonna rule the world
he's gonna rule the world
we're gonna rule the world

Billy died, yeah he died on top
he took a bullet, took a bullet from a cop
no more paper, no more paper to be made
25 years, 6 foot laid

he's gonna rule the world
he's gonna rule the world
he's gonna rule the world
we're gonna rule the world

gonna rule the world
gonna rule the world
gonna rule the world
gonna rule the world




move on past (reprise)

Do it when you want to
do it when you want to roll past
flying high all day you're flying
don't fly too fast
funny how your life goes
funny how your life don't last
do it when you want to
do it when you want to roll past

take it when you to
take it when you want to roll past
walking all day you're walking
don't walk too fast
funny how your life don't
funny how your life don't last
take it when you to
take it when you want to roll past

so quickly now I see
that it's always been me

it's always been me
so quickly now I see
so quickly now I see

so quickly now I see
it's always been me
it's always just been me



go away

well it's hot
too hot today
ain't got no job
ain't got no pay
it's hot
too hot today
got nothing to give
so just go away
just go away

it's cold
too cold today
ain't got no job
got no money
it's cold
damn cold today
left it all behind
that's just my way

well it's hot
too hot today
still got no job
still got no money
well it's hot
damn hot today
I got nothing to give
so just go away
just go away



take me away

I found the water
I found it all on my own
floating away, I've never been so far from home
you rise above it
while I just sink like a stone
so many people here
why do I feel so alone?
feel so alone?

so many choices
how many more will there be?
I can't see so well
come on move closer to me
taking on too much
too much that I just can't see
when will it end?
will we all really be free?

take me, take me away...

jobless and penniless
looks like my luck's turned around
wasn't the lord, but the love of a good girl I found
hoping that some day
soon you'll want to come around
wasn't the lord, but the love of a good girl I found

take me, take me away...

take me away
