No more standing on the edge of the road With my thumb out besides me No need to burden my friends with my load Down that long, winding highway But before I take off I best mention, I appreciate the ride My turn to take the wheel, my turn to drive Something has changed Now I'm going my own way That's the best way No more standing at the edge of the road With my thoughts all inside me They've been screaming and I wanna explode, So I best abide them Then I'll take out a pen and paper, and jot down my mind Write my plan to get out, my blue print to drive The seasons of change, They blow their own way, That's the best way. No more standing at the edge of the road With my friends blowing by me I ain't jealous but I feel so slow And those rocks sure chip my teeth And I know what they must be thinking, "Oh that boy is just killing some time" But it don't matter what you do, time dies all the time So what do you say? Let's go our own way That's the best way YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!

I only met you about an hour ago But something told me we'd be friends It doesn't matter we don't really know each other We will party as if we'd never end. So take some chairs up from the basement Duct tape the table's broken leg, Now more the furniture we'll have a funk dance party Oh hey, brother, what's your name again? Soon we'll be, (CHORUS) Singing Outta Tune On a Monday Afternoon We will never make no money Making songs just cuz they're funny! We wake up early, or did we even sleep? Drive to the diner and get a bite to eat Laying by the river talking 'bout our checkered past We could be working, but work can kiss our ass We're busy, (CHORUS) Now it's time to go our separate ways, Nothing worldly lasts forever We hug each other - dirty, grubby, so hungover And I'll see ya, next time we're passing through And we'll be, (CHORUS)

Oversleep 02:48
Tonight I won't oversleep, I'll wake up with the sun in the east, Birds are chirping, I ain't working, Life is good and life is sweet Making friends with people I just meet Friends with people I just met, Best friends and I don't know 'em yet It don't matter, it's all the same I can love you and not know your name This thing that unites us, this thing called pain We've all had someone done broke our hearts Not a matter of if, it's just when do we start Start to get over and accept that life is Life is whatever you think that it is Depends how you see, depends how you feel Just ask yourself and you'll for certain receive Just ask yourself who you desire to be But that's up to you, man, don't look at me Here we go! I know there's more to life than what I see And there's more to give than to receive So I give what I got and I give it for free That's how love works, give it you'll see Yeah, life can be so terrifically grand, The more I love the more I understand How everything works hand in hand Around and around like a big ol' rubber band Well, Tonight I won't oversleep I'll wake up with the sun in the east Birds are chirping and I ain't workin' Life is good and life is sweet Making friends with people I just meet Friends with some dude out on the street Best friends with a beautiful girl, ain't she a treat? Making friends, that's just so neat!

Well I ain't too happy, My world is upset, My eyes are swelled swollen And I feel unrest But sad I am not Cuz my cupboards ain't bare And I've got a nice ceiling That keeps the snow off my bed Well a happy home is the thing that I'd love most And I know how simple that might sound to you folks Warm smiling faces and a nice hot meal I don't really needs it, it's just how I feel Now I can handle being alone, but what I don't understand Does seeking a companion make me less of a man? I'd love a bond that's thicker than water Yeah, I think that's exactly the shit that I'm after The sway of the trees in the late autumn breeze Always seems to pacify me Well who am I kidding? I've never left town... But I think I just might, cuz I just found my sound! I ain't seeking attention, I just got no shame I'm tired of getting drunk and forgetting my name I'd love a fortune but I'm so sick of the strain And I'm tired of electrons ruining my day! Who needs a fortune? And you can stuff the fame! Yeah, I admit, I sound kind of lame I'd love a bond that's thicker than water Yes, I think that's exactly the shit that I'm after

I'm standing in a grocery checkout line Test of my patience, so I sit back and observe the times Some plastic person in a magazine Really is that who I'm supposed to be? Why do we worship false deities? Things can get misleading But I trust that it is freeing to Govern myself The long arm of the law is greatly misused When so many people are being abused We kill each other in middle east While people die from hunger on the streets When will we remember that WE'RE ALL ONE! Might sound lots like anarchy But know I'm talking harmony, Govern yourself Govern Yourself The Way You Wanna Govern Yourself The Way You Oughtta Govern Yourself Don't ya listen to me Listen to yourself and set yourself free! The dark side of man is far too well known Like suckers we pay to be brain washed like drones With endless distractions, electronic goals Sensationalized bullshit broadcast to home We work most our lives just to pay off some loans When those shackles tighten I don't care if it's frightening I'll govern myself Govern Yourself!

I woke up one morning About a quarter to three Interrupted one of the best dreams I've ever seen Then I looked in the mirror What you think I see? Twelve other people And they don't look like me And we all want to be free Though I feel alone I know there's more like me So many more than I'll ever see And we all want to be free This patch of freedom Has been sewn on by me I won't go down on bended knee Cuz one day This day I'm gonna be free I woke up one morning, What you think I see? One million people Who don't look like me I gotta keep moving Don't slam the door I don't wanna hurt nobody I don't wanna hurt nobody anymore Put my troubles in a suitcase And shove em out the door Ain't got no worries anymore I got no worries That's my charm I can't get hurt So I won't do harm The only failure Is to never fail To never remember that is my Living hell, well Put my troubles in a suitcase And throw em out the door Ain't got no worries anymore Fists of fire Jailed cell They think first You'd never tell They think fighting is something to do They think fighting as a right to rule Put my troubles in a suitcase And shove em out the door Ain't got no worries anymore Now I'm standing At a fork in the road I'm sick and tired of being told That there's only two paths that I'll ever know Use my imagination And off I go....

When we were brought upon this world It didn’t matter if you were a boy or a girl You had to cover up, no ifs, ands or buts The clothes on our backs became a must. I sometimes ponder what to wear, When to shave my face and when to cut my hair Often times it’s to get paid, other times I’m just trying to get laid By altering the natural beauty that I’m in, Well, the suit don’t make the man. So I grew up and got a job, Flipping burgers for a hungry mob All us workers we dressed the same and it might sound kind of lame, But it was at that time a boy felt like he belonged, And he knew... the suit don’t make the man. Now you may have met this type before: He sees a pretty girl dressed a certain way then calls her a whore, Or he sees a different dude and says, “I don’t like his attitude” Only based on the way he dresses and how he cuts his hair. Well, I’ve worn a suit, I’ve worn a tie, That don’t mean I’m some kind of nice guy It don’t mean I’m bad It don’t mean I’m sad It don’t mean anything, it don’t mean anything at all The suit don’t make the man. Now when I am dead and laying in my box, You might dress me up in a nice used tux, I’ll have some makeup on, but my soul’s long gone Just a big foofaraw for a dude turning into dust A big foofaraw for a dude turning into to dust... Just a big foofaraw for some dude turning into dust. The suit don’t make the man The suit don’t make the man Be something while you can

Well I got some reasons Why I should be leaving But I haven't had enough to pack up my stuff and hit the road And take off into the great unknown Well I got the feeling Like I'm under eating If life's a buffet I got an empty bowl Well get in line son, to get it full Well I sat down now my belly moans But I don't know I feel like another lost soul Just looking for what I think I can't find It's about time I look inside For whatever it is I'm looking for Well I got the feeling Like things they keep repeating Around and around my head they go Doubt coming back just like the snow When it stops how I wish I'd know Well I got soem reasons Why I should be leaving I'm sick and tired and my heart is growing cold I'm much too young to feel this old Who knows what great blessings these challenges will unfold? But I don't know I feel like another lost soul I'm just looking for what I think I can't find It's about time I look inside For whatever it is I'm looking for Well I got some reasons Why I should be leaving But the grass always seems greener on the other side Should I stay in the light or run and hide? Is it my heart being hurt or is it my pride Well I know, I know all I'll ever need to know Failure ain't my main concern I just wanna live out all those sweet dreams I got Up in there in my mind If I'm mining time I best make it gold You know what I've been seeing In all these books I'm reading? The world is my oyster I just gotta take control Crack its shell and grab the pearl Remember my blessings and share with the world Well that sounds like some mighty fine advice Awfully simple and simply nice Yeah the grass may seem greener on the other side It often does, but I will tell you what It is ALWAYS the greenest where you water it, boys and girls And that ain't no lie! That's the truth.
