One Foot in the Universe


Bumpy road to write upon,
Highway stretches on and on;
All the clouds that show the rain;
At the side of the road, a blood stain.
Broken yellow line for passing;
Concrete highway everlasting;

Red light, taillight, line of cars;
Road a mess of cracks and tar;
Oh the sound of falling water;
On the road to see my father.

Sometimes you get by,
Sometimes you can buy,
Somehow you get by

SOLO

We stripped the world of earth and wood;
We cut the rock, we cut the lathe;
You take the bad, you take the good;
You take them both and there you have.

Sometimes you get by,
Sometimes you can buy,
Somehow you get by

One foot in the universe,
One foot, one;
One foot in the universe.
