Song Meaning
Verse 1
Time it tells living in my home town,
Wedding bells they begin easy
Live it down, baby don't talk that much,
Baby knows, but baby don't tease me
In the park we could go walking,
Drowned in the dark or we could go sailing
On the sea
Verse 2
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 thinking she needs me
Verse 3
I was just sipping on something sweet
I don?t need political process
Verse 4
I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feeling they they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinking that I lost my mind
But it's been getting to me all this time
And it don't stop dragging me down
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
I still hear the children playing
Verse 7
Kick the can, kick the can, skip and blackjack
Steal a car and ring a round-rosy,
Rock and roll, candyland, bogeyman,
Verse 8
Run away and give me your sneakers
Verse 9
Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain
We began the weeping and wailing
A hurried high from pestilence pills and pride,
It's a shame, we could have gone sailing
But heaven knows,
Heaven knows everything
Tranquilize
Verse 10
I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door
I got this feeling they they're gonna come back for more
See I was thinking that I lost my mind
But it's been getting to me all this time
And it don't stop dragging me down
Verse 11
Silently reflection turns my world to stone
Patiently correction leaves us all alone
And sometimes I'm travel man
But tonight this engine's failing
Verse 12
I still hear the children playing
Dead beat dancers come to us and stay
Verse 13
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 looking for a page
In that lifeless book of hope
Where a dream might help you cope
With the Bushes and the bombs
Uh huh, Tranquilized
