lyrics

I watch the clock til its time to stop my dream and make my bed
tuck in my shirt and go to work with the dream still in my head
I pass the smiling business man and the beggars on the street
expansive land of liberty but somehow I dont feel free
See time is life and life is how you choose to spend your time
little hand big hand tick tock round the wheel and then you die
tonight Im gonna own my life under this bright full moon
pick up a brick and let it fly cause I aint got shit to lose but the
Piedmont Blues

I always felt these legs were made to run through greener fields
these lungs to fill with oxygen my heart to love what's real
but Ill be damned I've been convinced to go abroad and kill
God bless you Mr. president and your holy dollar bill
see freedom costs cause it aint free to drive around your car
at least were free enough to drown our feelings at the bar
well stay inside its dark outs what they tell you on the news
Im gonna turn my TV off cause I aint got shit to lose but the Piedmont Blues

Does anybody out there ever feel the way I feel
my calculations state we got the shit end of the deal
cause time is life and life is how you choose to spend your time
I choose to not let anyone decide how I use mine
we were not born to work and live somebody else's dream
but it cant run without the proper parts to the machine
so cast the fear clean out your ears put on your dancin shoes
perform an act of love tonight cause you aint got shit to lose but the
Piedmont Blues
