Lyrics:
Streets are quiet after 2am
Moon is sinking
Darkness creeping in
I see the future playing in my head
Sometimes I think that I should stay in bed

I'm getting tired of living on hope
Put out the fire
Blow away the smoke
Got too much stress from the IRS
Too much worry
I can’t second guess

You don’t have to look around
Very much to figure out

We’re living in a lonely world
All the people on this piece of earth
We know tomorrow might just be today
So we won’t let it slip away

You don’t have to watch the news at night
You’ve heard it all before
Now am I right?
You don’t need to see the big headlines
Another fraud or unsuspected crime

People running riots in the street
Lock your doors
Hide beneath the sheets
Eleven figure debt
Kids with guns
Stay at home
Who can you trust?

When did it get so crazy?
How did we lose control?

Chorus

Bridge
This world is yours and mine
We’re runnin’ out of time
We gotta be fearless now
We can’t think twice
We got only one chance
The clock is tickin fast
Let’s make it count tonight

We’re living in a funked up world
All the people on this piece of earth
We know tomorrow might just be today
So we won’t let it slip away

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
