4th Of July


I can hear my voice complaining
I been talkin’ to myself
and it seems like there’s nobody else
who can see my situation
help me with my heavy load
and it feels like I’m going to explode
in flames all over the sky
just like the 4th of july
well they’ve taken my donation
but they say they’re still not sure
that they’re gonna find a cure
see my mind was getting cluttered
up with things that never mattered
it was time to leave thinking alone
now I don’t keep my concentration
fixed on anything too long
my only thought is drifting on
cos there’s a red glare blinding my eye
just like the 4th of july
well I’ll pay my debt to science
but I’m defaulting on my loans
come and take my skin and bones
since I lost my destination
and forgot my way back home
I been waiting for a sign to come
when you’re ready lord I’m able
for to join you at the table
cos I been chillin’ with the chosen ones
and talking ’bout spinning wheels in the sky
just like the 4th of july
to the promised land I’m coming
somewhere on along this road
