Weird On Top (1995)

By James Moats in Tucson, AZ

for each problem send a silver dollar
each blink of the eye holds a thousand hours
there's a problem that needs fixing
because problems need fixing
there's no time left today for tomorrow

it's a chase but slowly unstoppable
to leave all this now would be wholly impossible

take the low light provided and
show off for the camera
take out the lens to make do
fly off into the sunset and
head west on a jet plane
take off your face to get through

it's better for all though all are still losing
there's nothing in this world that is worth the confusion
give and take and forget that is what i tell them
the only solution is to stop dreaming

take the high life denied and
live for the moment
throw away what you've got to get through
dry off under the sunset and
ride off on a fast train
hold your breath until you're blue
