        Time it tells living in my home town
        wedding bells they begin easy
        Live it down, baby don't talk that much
        baby knows that baby don't tease me

        In the park we could go walking
        drown 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 I'm 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 traveling 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 rosie
        Rock and roll, candyland, boogieman
        run away and give me your sneakers

        Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain
        we began the weeping and wailing
        Ah hurried high from pestilence, pills and pride
        it's a shame, we could've 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 that 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 traveling 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 been
        and I don't care what you 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
        ah huh tranquilized
