Mojave Rain

Tranquilize

Time it tells livin' in my hometown
Wedding bells they begin easy
Live it down baby don't talk that much
Baby knows that baby don't tease me

In the park we could go walking
Drown in the dark or we could go sailing
On the sea

Always here always on time
Close call was it love or was it just easy
Money talks when people need shoes and socks
Steady boys, I'm thinkin' she needs me

I was just sippin' on something sweet
I don't need political process
I got this feelin' that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feelin' that they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinkin' that I lost my mind
But it's been gettin' to me all this time
And it don't stop draggin' me down

Silently reflection turns my world to stone
Patiently correction leaves us all alone
And sometimes I'm a travel man
But tonight this engine's failing
I still hear the children playing

Kick the can, kick the can skip it blackjack
Steal a car and ring around rosy
Rock and roll, candyland, boogeyman
Run away and give me your sneakers

Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain
We began a weepin' and wailin'
Hurry hide from pestilence, pills and pride
It's a shame we could have gone sailing

But Heaven knows, Heaven knows everything
Tranquilize

I got this feelin' that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feelin' that they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinkin' that I lost my mind
But it's been gettin' to me all this time
And it don't stop draggin' me down

Silently reflection turns my world to stone
Patiently correction leaves us all alone
And sometimes I'm a travel man
But tonight this engine's failing

And I still hear the children playing
Deadbeat dancers come to us and stay

'Cause I don't care where you've been
And I don't care what you've seen
We're the ones who still believe
And we're lookin' for a page
In that lifeless book of hope
Where a dream might help you cope
With the Bushes and the bombs
Uh huh, tranquilize
