oh, i put a penny on a railroad track
can't take it back, who'd wanna take it back
but these kids keep on wishing for a different town
or a different time, anything but here anything but now

tall grass and winding roads
that's where the story grows
i'm skipping over my stepping stones
dead leaves and dried up goals
pass with the wind that blows
i'm skipping over my stepping stones

no, i ain't trying to get a thing for free
like too much cake at someone else's birthday
but in between waking up and going back to sleep
there is no rhyme, just trying to buy more free time

well the beggars can't be choosers till they pay their debts
that's why i'm doing what i do, i'll take what i can get

(repeat chorus)

you travelled out to sea with a heart so wild and free
but your biting on the hooks of the doubters dirty looks
always in transition, endless intermission
a trap, a lie, just to occupy your time

(repeat chorus)

i am here and you are here
we are now
and we are happening

    General Commenthello everyone. i love castledoor they are great people and it shows in their every action. to me this song is about the power of now. everything is happening now. so all that matters is the constant now. i read a book by Eckhart Tolle that is called The Power of Now. and this song seems to convey a very similar message. am i correct? what was the message the band wanted to portray? well i love the tunes and the possitive energy that is embued within it.
