Get it in Gear

I,
I see,
I see the farmer with his hands in the soil,
see the roughneck all covered in oil,
in the hot sun they bend & they toil,
loyal... year upon year -
they just persevere.

Me,
Me, I try,
Me I try the best that I’m able,
to try & find my place at the table,
like a horse that pulls & bucks at the stable,
unable... to get himself clear -
I’m never any freer -
While the days one upon one disappear -
Got to get it in gear.

You,
You love,
You love, dance, big, like a northern light,
when your hips sway they pull the tide,
be my Bonnie, be my Clyde,
’n lets ride, in a car we commandeer -
You point the way, I’ll steer -
State upon state collecting souvenirs -
Got to get it in gear.

We,
We travel,
We travel with the wind & the dust,
pedal to the metal or the metal to rust,
a leap of faith, win or bust,
just trust the ground to appear -
No fear upon fear -
And the town lights fade, fade away in the rearview mirror -
Got to get it in gear.
