Quickly

Don’t you wish that you could just bail out sometimes
just keep on going way, way, way past your subway lines
Take the wind from the streetcars and let it blow you up
let it blow you up
until you are so high, so high
you don’t know where the hell you are
Wouldn’t that be nice?

I don’t know what I’m doing here
There’s got to be a place for us to make it
I don’t know what I’m doing here
There’s gotta be a place, there’s gotta be a time
We’ve just gotta find it quickly, just gotta find it quickly
gotta find it Quickly, Quickly, Quickly,
Wouldn’t that be nice?

I’ve got a lot to say but it doesn’t mean have any say
talk isn’t cheap anymore
you gotta pay for your platform
we live in a system designed to keep us poor
Everytime you think you’re ahead, you’re no further than before

And I don’t own this land on which I choose to take a stand
they’ll probably charge me more taxes, more taxes
and then it’s off to work while the government relaxes
And the only way I’m going to make it
is if I show up on their t.v.
and the only way I wanna make it
is if you show up beside me…
wouldn’t that be, wouldn’t that be nice?

I don’t know what I’m doing here
There’s got to be a place for us to make it
I don’t know what I’m doing here
There’s gotta be a place, there’s gotta be a time
We’ve just gotta find it quickly, just gotta find it quickly
gotta find it Quickly, Quickly, Quickly,
Wouldn’t that be nice?
