It's been a long time since I've been around here
I'm driving so fast, the trees disappear around me
Everything I know, or have known before
Is here in my mind, I think you know the score

The world keeps turning, everybody's learning
Keep ahead of the race it's the human despair
On my blocks everynight trying to figure out whats wrong & right
Oh, just as psychadelic thing, I'll bring you love, anything
But the tears will flow, just the like the blood on the streets yeah

It's been too long since we sat down here & talked
It's been too long, you know we seperated
It's been so long I wish that I could build a bridge
It's been so long, how can I see through it?

The world keeps turning, everybody's learning
Keep ahead of the race, I've money to spend
And time to lend on my friends
Everything right in my life again
Oh babe, don't you take it away & give me days that were black & gray
And all the corners of my mind turned, entwined into another guy
Oh hit, a hypocrit, yeah that's it. I turned my words, they twirl & combine
They mix in your head, and make you think that I'm singing right to you
It's ok, if you want, I'll give you the time, the money to run
You could be the president, if you get that far then give me some help
