"Something On My Mind" as written by Nian Brindle, James Fraser, Matthew Nelson, Simon Nelson and Barney Williams....
Take the train,
Go separate ways,
And leave it long forgotten.
I'll hang my hat, and
I won't be back.
On my way out,
I'm feeling lame.
Am I to blame?
Or am I just too jaded?
And I won't be back,
What'd ya think of that?

When it feels like life's wastin' away,
I can say: that when
There's something on my mind,
It takes my concentration.
Just wanna lay it on the line,
Avoid all confrontation.
I'm gonna say this one more time
For all my generation,
You'll never, ever pull my lever
Not today and not forever
(not today and not forever)

Take the fame
And change my name
Because my jacket's faded
And I'll change my hat
No we can't have that
(you'll be looking at a brand new cat)
It's all made up.
I've had enough
Of this circulation.
If you write me back,
I'll tell you where it's at.

When it feels like life's wastin' away,
I can say: that when
There's something on my mind,
It takes my concentration.
Just wanna lay it on the line,
Avoid all confrontation.
I'm gonna say this one more time
For all my generation,
You'll never, ever pull my lever
Not today and not forever

Something on my mind,
It takes my concentration.
Just wanna lay it on the line,
Avoid all confrontation.
I'm gonna say this one more time,
You'll never, ever pull my lever,
Not today and not forever.
(Not today and not forever)

Something on my mind,
It takes my concentration.
Just wanna lay it on the line,
Avoid all confrontation.
I'm gonna say this one more time,
For all my generation.
You'll never, ever pull my lever.
Not today and not forever.

Something on my concentration.
Just wanna lay it on the line,
Avoid all confrontation.
I'm gonna say this one more time,
For all my generation.
You'll never, ever pull my lever.
Not today and not forever.

    General CommentI really like the flow of this song....and i think that when you wrote "Just wanna lay it on the line"...i hear "I'm told to lay it on the line" apart from one chorus...not too sure which one. Hawk Nelson are really under-rated right now.

    General Commenti believe he is talking about God when he feels like he is wasting away he puts God on his mind and God takes his concentration and he is putting down for God and letting no one meaning (i think ) the devil so he wont take him away from God

    General CommentI think this song is about QUIET TIME with GOD. If you do not know what a quiet time is then it is just taking a little time out of your day to spend time with GOD, talk to him pray, read the bible. But I think it is talking about how during the day The devil temps him with other things to do throughout the day, But what what he really needs to do is have his quiet time. When he has that GOD will help him throughout the day.
