It's been a long time since I've been 'round 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 every night, trying to figure out what's wrong & right
Oh, just as psychedelic 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 and talked
It's been too long, you know we separated
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's right in my life again

Oh babe, don't you take it away
And give me days that were black and gray
And all the corners of my mind
Turned, entwined into another guy

Oh hit, a hypocrite, yeah, that's it
I turned my words, they twirl and combine
They mix in your head,
And make you think that I'm singing right to you

It's okay, if you want
I'll give you the time, the money to run
You could be the President
And if you get that far then give me some help
