You can be what you wanted to be and leave the way you’ve been behind
You can see what you wanted to see was always there but you were blind

I know a place to be safe from the people you hate
I know a place but make haste for the hour has grown late

You can be what you wanted to be and leave the way you’ve been behind
What you wanted to see was always there but you were blind
And I know you’ll agree that it gives you just a little bit of style
But it don’t come for free so give the man a smile

Let the dope take control of your soul
Let the rock machine roll
Let it open your eyes until your hopes soar so high
Let the rock machine roll
‘Til you’re tired and cold
‘Til your last stitch is sold
Let the rock machine roll

You can make the love you wanted to make and know a life lived for bliss
You can take what you wanted to take its hidden just behind this little kiss

You can be what you wanted to be and leave the way you’ve been behind
What you wanted to see was always there but you were blind
And I know you’ll agree that it gives you just a little bit of style
But it don’t come for free so give the man a smile

Let the dope take control of your soul
Let the rock machine roll
Let it open your eyes until your hopes soar so high
Let the rock machine roll
‘Til you’re tired and cold
‘Til your last stitch is sold
Let the rock machine

Roll like an avalanche
Fast like a juggernaut
High like a stone tumbling down from the mountaintop
Roll like an ambulance
Fast like a juggernaut
Don’t let the pressure drop
Don’t let the pleasure stop

No
So high
So high
So high

You’re getting number
Number and a little more corrupt
You’re getting number
Number and a little more corrupt
You’ve got the number
Pick up the phone and call the number up
You’re going up now
Going up now to breathe

You can be what you wanted to be and leave the way you’ve been behind
What you wanted to see was always there but you were blind
But it don’t come for free so do your best to give the man a little smile
And I know you’ll agree
Well come on and get

High like an astronaut
Fast like a juggernaut
Roll like a stone tumbling down from the mountaintop
Fast like an ambulance
High like an astronaut
Don’t let the pressure drop
Don’t let the pleasure stop
No

Let the rock machine roll
Let the rock machine roll
Let the rock machine roll

    General CommentI think this song is about how Rock is going to take over Pop/Rap music garbage that is popular today, and how all the Rock bands out there can do it.
    Its almost like a Call To Arms to all the Rock Bands.
    It Sucks Copyright broke up, this song was good

    Awwww damn.
    Maybe they'll make a new band again. I mean, the lead singer's been in enough...
