"The Ride" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
in the east they can meditate
They can recreate the sound of all and bring us home
I think I'll go there some day
Maybe for a holiday
Maybe just light a candle, take a seat for the ride

And you don't need no money to fly, to truly fly away (recreate the sound of all)
And you don't need no car to truly ride, truly ride away (recreate the sound of all)

In the west we think we're the best
We've shown the whole wide world that money is all we care for
Someday the scientists will see there's no such thing as gravity
They'll all just light a candle, take a seat for the ride

And you don't need no money to fly, to truly fly away (recreate the sound of all)
And you don't need no car to truly ride, truly ride away (recreate the sound of all)

As you ascend in silence, all doubt behind you
You reach the summit my friend and find your destiny

And you don't need no money to fly, to truly fly away (recreate the sound of all)
And you don't need no car to truly ride, truly ride away (recreate the sound of all)
And you don't need no money to fly, to truly fly away (recreate the sound of all)
And you don't need no car to truly ride, truly ride away (recreate the sound of all)
To truly ride away

    General CommentIts good, but a little preachy... and its not that deep of a song. East is enlightened west is evil...

    General CommentIt sounds to me like Ed's admitting that he's a Buddhist...or something like that. It's funny though, because in a lot of his other songs, Ed sounds like he's a Christian. Yeah, I really don't know. He confuses me a lot...
