Turn It Up

Album: Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar (2014)
  • On Charley Patton highway
    The mist, the rain, the mud
    Somewhere east of Tunica
    And I'm close to giving up
    My car goes round in circles
    The road remains the same
    For help and consolation
    I'll turn it on again
    Turn it up
    Turn it up

    Alone with disconnection
    And not a lonesome word
    I reach out to the radio
    And the clinically disturbed
    "Give it up," the man says
    Surrender and be saved
    He'll drive away your demons
    His help is on the way

    Turn it up
    Oh turn it up!
    Ah, ah, ah, ah

    I'm lost inside America
    And I'm turning inside out
    I'm turning into someone else
    I heard so much about
    I'm blinded by the neon
    The righteous and the might

    I'm stuck inside the radio
    Turn it on and let me out

    A touch of serendipity
    A little stroke of luck
    The radio inside this car
    Brings guidance from above
    The smallest contribution
    Will keep me in safe hands
    I'm calling 1-800
    I ain't leaving it to chance

    Turn it up
    Turn it up
    Ah, ah (Turn it up) (Ah)
    Turning into someone else
