Beside Me I Dreamed I Stopped Smoking Might as Well Saturday Evening Down in Verdun
Car Keys Id Rather Walk Old Man Santo Spill Yer Guts
Carla I Tried Old Mutt Murphy Ten Years Younger
Couldnt We Joes Report from the AfterLife Perpetual Motion Water & Stone
Flower of the middle Class   Rosy Rear View When I was a Young Man

       

Perpetual Motion

Perpetual Motion

 

Oh bring me distraction, some kind of action

Don't let me have to look me in the eye

Like a shark in the ocean, perpetual motion

I can't stop from swimming, or I'll sink down & die

 

Oh bring me a party, bring me some noise

Bring me my wit, my charm & my poise

Bring me the natural kicks of my youth

Bring me that beauty that looks just like truth

 

There's something that's missing, there's something that lacks

A new coat of paint won't cover the cracks

To get where I am now I've hustled & saved

Am I building a tower or digging a grave?

 

Sometimes I care too much, sometimes not enough

Sometimes I feel fragile & act like I'm tough

Sometimes it seems like divided I stand

But you can't walk on water or swim on dry land.

 

Oh bring me distraction, some kind of action

Don't let me have to look me in the eye

Like a shark in the ocean, perpetual motion

I can't stop from swimming, or I'll sink down & die
