lyrics

The world has gone and changed on me
Destoyed my whole philosophy
My faith was strong it never shook
One levee break was all it took
Lemme float away into a sunset fading on a silver screen?
Can you show the way?

Georgie sold us out today
For a pair of sneakers and a full week's pay
The landlord wants me out of town
Else he gonna put you in the ground
Can we run away to a blue sky hanging on the scenery?
Can you show the way?

Save me Jimmy Dean, save me Steve McQueen
Wake-a me from this dream, show me what it means
Three runs down in the bottom of the ninth
If I could pick two guys to have on my side
It would be Jimmy Dean & Mr. Steve McQueen

The world is getting awful strange
People get their faces rearranged
High cheekbones and a plastic nose
But I like Mike when he was 10-years old
Can we take it back to the time inside our parents' photographs?
Can you bring it back?

Save me Billie Jeam, save me Steve McQueen
Wake-a me from this dream, show me what it means
Three runs down in the bottom of the ninth
If I could pick two guys to be on my side
It would be Jimmy Dean & Mr. Steve McQueen

Just tell me yes or no
How does this story go?
Whether we take it fast or we take it slow
I hate to ask, but there's one thing I've got to know

The world has gone and changed on me
The way things were is history
1 and 2 came crumbling down
We act as if they're still around
Can we move ahead and forget about the images inside our heads?
Can we wake the dead?

Save me Jimmy Dean, save me Steve McQueen
Wake me from this dream, show me what it means
Three runs down in the bottom of the ninth
If I could pick two guys to be on my side
Four runs down in the bottom of the ninth
If I could pick two guys to be on my side
Five runs down, six runs down, seven runs down, eight runs down
Nine runs down, ten runs down
I dunno how we're gonna turn this game around...
