Lyrics: Go for it
You're on your way to another hit
Your bandmates hate you, you don't give a shit
You know the formula and don't fuck with it
Go for it

You write the lyrics and they really groove
The women love you and your crazy moves
You always act like you got something to prove
Go for it, and

Keep running sleepy
Keep running

He's the man
He is the man with the master plan
To spread his gospel all across the land
He heals the sick with just one touch of his hand
He's the man

His sci-fi novels always sell out quick
The famous people really love his schtick
The nasty habits that he's helped them kick
He's the man

Keep running sleepy
Keep running sleepy
The world is waiting for your next trick
So make the most of it
Make the most of it

Hallelujah for these men
They're human beings like everyone
They've touched the world like only you and me could dream
Ah men

Yes you can
Time to wake up, time to join the herd
To learn the message and help spread the word
To soar through life just like a Dodo bird
Yes you can

Keep running sleepy
Keep running sleepy
The world is waiting for the next trick
So make the most of it

Keep running sleepy
Keep running sleepy
The world is waiting for your next trick
So make the most of it
Make the most of it

About the Artist
Zoo Pilot

Zoo Pilot is a newly formed indie rock band based in Austin, TX. Comprised of former members of Sleep Station (Eyeball Records), Zoo Pilot combines the classic sounds of bands like the Beatles, Kinks and Zombies with modern indie-rock sensibilities to create a unique, timeless sound.
With Brad Paxton handling vocals and guitar and Josh Nichols on bass and drums, the group looks forward to bringing their diverse sound and often left-of-center lyrical themes to the many music fans of Austin and beyond.
They have lent their compositional and production talents to a number of television shows, including CBS's Cold Case, American Idol Rewind and the Showtime series Shameless. They record and mix their songs at Brad's home studio in South Austin.
