Album: Wheels Of The City (2019)
  • Just getting up is getting me down
    Gonna pull the string get my head unwound
    I might be a king yeah, the king of the clowns
    I don't care I'm gonna leave this town
    Makes no difference I'm gonna wear that wear that crown

    Unrest is a state of mind the world is at your feet
    it's a long long road ahead lord and all I want is sleep, oh sleep, oh sleep

    Now it's time for that wheel to go round
    Down that road where hard sorrows abound
    And the people I meet live on in my songs
    I'll raise them up and bring them along

    Unrest is a state of mind the world is at your feet
    it's a long long road ahead lord and all I want is sleep, oh sleep, oh sleep

    Before I die I want to learn to live
    Try and forget about yesterday's sins
    My life's a tune with the chorus removed
    Gonna wear the words like an old tattoo

    Unrest is a state of mind the world is at your feet
    it's a long long road ahead lord and all I want is sleep, oh sleep, oh sleep

    Unrest is a state of mind the world is at your feet
    it's a long long road ahead lord and all I want is sleep, oh sleep, oh sleep
