Time it tells living in my home town, Wedding bells they begin easy
Live it down, baby don't talk that much,
Baby knows, but baby don't tease me
In the park we could go walking, Drowned in the dark or we could go sailing On the sea
 Always here, always on time Close call, was it love or was it just easy Money talks when people need shoes and socks, Steady boys, I'm thinking she needs me

I was just sipping on something sweet
I don?t need political process

I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feeling they they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinking that I lost my mind
But it's been getting to me all this time
And it don't stop dragging me down
 Silently reflection turns my world to stone Patiently correction leaves us all alone And sometimes I'm a travel man
But tonight this engine's failing 
I still hear the children playing

Kick the can, kick the can, skip and blackjack Steal a car and ring a round-rosy,
Rock and roll, candyland, bogeyman,

Run away and give me your sneakers 
Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain
We began the weeping and wailing A hurried high from pestilence pills and pride,
It's a shame, we could have gone sailing But heaven knows, Heaven knows everything Tranquilize

I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feeling they they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinking that I lost my mind
But it's been getting to me all this time
And it don't stop dragging me down
 Silently reflection turns my world to stone Patiently correction leaves us all alone And sometimes I'm travel man
But tonight this engine's failing 
I still hear the children playing
Dead beat dancers come to us and stay
 Cause I don't care where you've been
And I don't care what you've seen
We're the ones who still believe
And we're looking for a page
In that lifeless book of hope Where a dream might help you cope
With the Bushes and the bombs Uh huh, Tranquilized
