Take my heart to unknown
To the dark all alone
Stake my heart make it groan
To embark on it's own
I walked in step
Past the old times
I would fly
In a long field of bleeding death
Hey old man, say, whatcha say
Have ya got some information?
I'm far away, just way out here
And I need a destination
Elijah, I swear that I'll be true
Because Elijah, it's when I think of you
Because Elijah, I know what I pursuit
Because Elijah, so what we gonna do?
Move along casting shadows
Resistance can be only in vain
Getting by dodged the gallows
My existence is my enemies' bane
Man I was sitting around thinking and the smell of mary-j-wuanna leaves was burning a stench
into the ashtray, which happened to be hood of my carÂan old beat-up station wagon with the
high beams burnt out. Now, as I said I, was thinking... grandma was always trying to hook me
up into going to the big house. She said I'd learn somethin'Âsomethin' right. She said you
Reverse intro (detuning their guitar)
"We're all ready to go
If you tell us we have to give our lives now, we ready.
I'm pretty sure these brother's are with me."
Your my Friend,
We'll stick together til the end.
What else is there for a buddy to do?
But stick around with you
Let it grow let it blow let it grow
Let it go let it grow let it grow
I like to watch it grow so sweat
Don't light me up I got a short fuse
Don't put me down I just love the dirt
Don't tie me up 'cause I'll just get loose
Don't try to play you might get hurt
It don't matter what they say
You can't be the Jack Johnson of today
Big Black Baby Jesus on the way
Come on, the Jesus of today
I gotta keep running "I'm starting over"
I do for fun and "I'm starting over"
I'm low and I love it "I'm starting over"
Gotta keep gunnin' "I'm starting over"
Ran outta 'tude and my nose is a runny
I like you lots, but you think that I'm a dummy.
Can I pick you up with me and my buddies and chill?
I'm trapped in a basement
And there's no way out
I'm a papa's favorite
Without a doubt
