"Quattro (World Drifts In)" as written by and Joey Burns John Convertino....
Love the run but not the race
All alone in a silent way
World drifts in and the world's a stranger

In a light, eclipsed and alienated
In a time, occupied and invaded
Can't tell what's right, better hit the ground running

In the hills where the tall weed grows
Hands are tied and won't let go
Can't escape this place without leaving the world behind

In a light, ashamed and humiliated
In a time, sacrificed for the sake of trade
The soul is bent, feels the weight of truth
Falling through
Left behind, no choice but to run to the mountains
Where no poppies grow, you have to hit the ground running

In a light, paralyzed and spirits fading
Out of time, must decide to fall or run
Into the eye, of the storm no sign or omen
Make it right, or fall to the other side
Where fields are burning
From the day you're born
You'll always hit the ground running

    General Commentit sure is a fantastic song. i think joey commented on the DVD, that he wanted to evoke a "constant feeling of pace & running", referring to some mexican tribe that had to do just that :-)

    General CommentWhat a great song. And how we see these people whose lives are just fucked because of forces over which they have no control. It's the American story. People have come here with blood in their teeth, group by group. Every time, people say that it will be the end of America. I think you have to be a mongoloid not to see that it is the engine that has driven America from it's inception.
