Shaky Constructs of Questionable Import and Dubious Utility.
Up the crick, or without usefulness. Depending on which you are I suppose.
Put your hands on the wheelLet the golden age beginLet the window downFeel the moonlight on your skinLet the desert windCool your aching headLet the weight of the worldDrift away insteadThese day I barely get byI don’t even tryIt’s a treacherous roadWith a desolated viewThere’s distant lightsBut here they’re far and fewAnd the sun don’t shineEven when it’s dayYou gotta drive all nightJust to feel like you’re okThese days I barely get byI don’t even try
In the middle of the night,I go walking in my sleep...From the mountains of faith,To a river so deep...I must be looking for something,Something sacred I lost,But the river is wide,And it's too hard to cross. And even though I know the river is wide,I walk down every evening and stand on the shore,I try to cross to the opposite side,So I can finally find what I've been looking for...In the middle of the night,I go walking in my sleep...Through the valley of fear,To a river so deep...And I've been searching for something,Taken out of my soul,Something I'd never lose,Something somebody stole...I don't know why I go walking at night,But now I'm tired, and I don't want to walk anymore.I hope it doesn't take the rest of my lifeUntil I find what it is I've been looking for...In the middle of the night,I go walking in my sleep...Through the jungle of doubt,To the river so deep...I know I'm searching for something,Something so undefined,That it can only be seenBy the eyes of the blind...In the middle of the night...I'm not sure about life after this,God knows I've never been a sprititual man.Baptized by fire, I wade into the riverThat runs to the promised land...In the middle of the night,I go walking in my sleep...Through the desert of truth,To the river so deep...We all end in the ocean,We all start in the streams,We're all carried alongBy the river of dreams...In the middle of the night...Yes, I'm still in my Billy Joel "stage." Just be thankful I didn't see Gordon Lightfoot in concert instead:)
