Lyrics

Time For A Witness

 


 

Waiting

Waiting so long
Waiting till dawn
No chance, so forget it
Break down, if you let it
Could be so far away now

Energy take you higher
Seventeen, really wired
Slow down, don't forget it
Burn out, if you let it
Could be so far away now

Where you going?
Don't think about that
Head in the clouds
Don't know where he's at

Slow down, don't forget it
Burn out, if you let it
Could be so far away now

Time For A Witness

Might be time for a witness, yeah,
Sent from high above
In a million fisted message            (fisted???)
We all know the word is love
Well past the age of reason
Yeah we've known it for so long
Pardon is to everyone
Who ever done me wrong

And we'll think of a solution     (?)
Just give me air to breath
Well it might be my salvation
It might give me some disease
Well high up on the mountain
Yeah up upon a hill
Yeah we look around and ask
Yeah how much more we gonna kill?

All those false smiling prophets
Don't give up without a fight
Well if I'm on the wrong side
Who is on the right?
How many more times
Might we be saved by the bell
Well we could be in the garden
But we've made this living hell
Oh no

It's alright
But it's alright now

Sooner Or Llater

Sooner or later
You'll come around
Get yourself back up
From the ground
What you want and
What you need
What you got
Enough to succeed
Looking for reality
Afore it gets the best of me
Wake me up and
Don't be late
Don't sit around
Around and vegetate

Oh and we're going ...
Home

I don't know
what's up ahead
Don't think too much
it'll hurt your head
Take a walk
all over town
Curiosity abounds
Take me down
the road a ways
Let me in
don't make me pay
Call me down
don't make a fuss
Take the back
seat on the bus

Oh and we're going ...
Home

Yeah we're going home

Find A Way

Headed down a road
Find someplace to hide
Meet me at the door
Let me come inside
How could I forget
Wrapped up in your arms
Tangled up in you Isn't very hard

Could we really find a way around it?

Time is running out
Hour's getting late
The sun is going down
No time to hesitate
Shelter me tonight
Take me in your heart
Safe from anything
Tearing us apart

Maybe we could find a way around it?

Decide

Those were the days
I remember so well
What ever happens
You can't ever tell
Waiting for someone
To arrive
Those old habits, yeah,
They never die
Nobody's problem, baby,
But your own
Held for ransom
Since the day you were born

Somebody always
makes you mad
Never remember
but you wish you had
Think about treating
everybody kind
Spread all the love, yeah,
that you find
Open your heart
and you won't be blind
Open your eyes
and you'll find the light
Find the light
Find the light

Decide
What side
You're on

Doin' It Again

She's doin' it again
She don't really mean it
Try and understand
She don't really mean it
She's driving me crazy
What's it all about?
You know it won't be easy
Gotta work it out
Gotta work it out

It's like a devil inside
Some kinda major disaster
Or it's just a state of mind
And it really don't matter
She's driving me crazy      (doin' it again)
She's troubled in life       (doin' it again)
You know it won't be easy      (doin' it again)
Look behind the lies      (doin' it again)
Look behind the lies

Doin' it again
Oh no

Doin' it again

Invitation

Come on, everybody, come along
Don't know where we're going or how long
Watch out for the things along the way
Careful don't get bitten by the road     (?)

Take me there
Take me away
Take me there

Going to a party on the lawn
Leaving in the morning one by one
Would it really matter anyway?
Would you really miss them when they're gone?

Take me there
Take me away
Take me there
Take me away

Away

Try and find the way, it's getting dark
Take me there before it gets too hard
Watch out for the things along the way
Try to find the path before we start

Take me there
Take me away
Take me there
Take me away

Away

For Now

Ain't nothing going on
Ain't nothing happening at all
Can't find anything
Can't find nothing at all

I'm waiting, ready to go
What I want, hey, I don't know
Alright
Alright

Maybe I'll take a walk
Maybe I'll stick around
My mind is spinning, yeah,
And everything is upside-down

No rest in a restless world
Everything is out of control
It's alright
Alright

It's alright
Yeah it's my life
It's OK
Better off that way

...

It's alright
Yeah it's my life
It's OK
Better off that way

It's alright
Yeah it's your life
It's OK
Better off that way

Alright

(spoken)
My mind is spinning ...

What She Said

Don't lie, she said
Don't lie, she said
Don't lie, she said
Don't lie, she said

Don't wanna do it, she said
Don't wanna do it, she said
She said
She said

Alright, he said
Alright, he said
Don't mind, he said
Don't mind, he said

Don't wanna do it, no more
I wanna do it, no more
No more
No more
No more

Well can I come over tonight

What do you think I wanna do, that's right

I said we will have a real cool time tonight
I said we will have a real cool time
We will have a real cool time
A real cool time tonight
