"On And On" as written by Garry Shider, William Bootsy Collins, Gary Cooper, James Thompson, Eric Roberson and George Clinton....
I want a big house that sits by the shore
And when I wake up I can watch the tide rise
All of my friends they would live next door
And every night we'd build a fire in the backyard
We'd listen to all our favorite songs
Watch it burn and we sing along

On and on and on oh oh oh
On and on and on

Woke up this morning it was bitter cold
Pieced together where the car was parked
Now I'm running late to work
I took the back roads behind the prison yard
This year is slinking by so slow
This town has watched me come and go

On and on and on oh oh oh
On and on and on

Do you believe that your in control?
Of the things that you say you want?
Up late watching t.v shows
And get the feeling that we are the products
Of generations I'm searching for gold
Think we're the best just to stay afloat

On and on and on oh oh oh
On and on and on
The waves crash on and on and on oh oh oh
On and on and on

When you feel the water pull you down
You're caught up in the gravity
Don't let it take you out to drown
Just hold your head above this

Take me back to the place
Where we were standing at the top
When we were living everyday
Like its the last one that we've got
Yeah we'll go back to the days that went on and on and on
And we'll get back to the place where waves crashed on and on and on

    General Commentsorry for all the comments :P
    i think this ones about not being on tour and just being home "this town has watched me come and go"

    also "take me back to the place
    where we were standing at the top
    when we were living everyday
    like its the last one that we've got"

    they just wanna be back where they were before Colin left

    General CommentI love this song so much.
    it should have more comments.

    this helps me feel like I'm not alone in that I hate this town, it's so slow, and so cold. I wanna go a place like he describes so bad and just get away from everything
