lyrics

Side of the road rain keeps a coming
Everything works she just ain’t a running
Begging and pleading never seems to work over time

I’ve been mistook, I’ve been mistaken
Laid on the gas when I should have been braking
You’d think that I’d know this old road, but I can’t read the signs

And the weird old world just keep spinning around

On the TV news at the end of the day
I watch them throw loaded dice in these games that they play
They’re saying that 5 and 2 somehow add up to 9

Cheating to win, showing no mercy
I watch it roll down their chins while others go thirsty
Thinking Lord if you can hear me, I hope that you wake up in time

And the weird old world just keeps spinning around

You say that you’re scared and you’re tired of hiding
Getting drowned out by this wave we’ve been riding
You’re running for cover, but the trees just get further away

Sleep with the dogs, sing to the stars
When you get there you’ll find out it wasn’t too far
Memories linger tomorrow turns into today

And the weird old world just keeps spinning around
