Gets dark around here early
Sometimes the moon it follows you in the middle of the day
Waiting to be found, we're just standin' around
There's nothin' really much to say
I didn't know any better
You didn't think that we should
So we're gonna burn down the night
I wanna be misunderstood
All four wheels across the pavement
We used to live in black and white
I only think about tomorrow
So it'll get me through tonight.

And I aint laughing
And I aint joking anymore
I keep my footsteps near the ground
I keep my eyes glued to the floor
And somewhere in between
Only the slightest dream on this side of midnight
And maybe we're just crazy
Maybe we're better off dead
Maybe things'll never change
Maybe you got it backwards in your head
The last of the ghetto astronauts won't be ignored
Said I'm gonna go where, no one has gone before
Said I'm gonna go where, no one has gone before

Gets dark around here early
Sometimes there is more to the moon than
just one man can see
The voice without a name cries
"Sounded just the same, just the same way"
If I didn't know any better
I'd say that maybe we all should
When the mornin' comes around
Don't wanna be misunderstood
We're sleepin' on the pavement thinkin' everythin's alright
Waitin' for tomorrow to get us through tonight

And I aint laughing
And I aint joking anymore
I keep my footsteps near the ground
I keep my eyes glued to the floor
And somewhere in between
Only the slightest dream on this side of midnight

Been walkin' here with the giants
Sleepin' in a town without a name
Been holdin' on to your arms and legs
(Your arms and legs)
Cause nobody here wants to put you back together again
(Together again, together again, together again)

Maybe we're just crazy
Maybe we're better off dead
Maybe things'll never change
Maybe you got it backwards in your head
The last of the ghetto astronauts won't be ignored
Said I'm gonna go where no one has gone before
Said I'm gonna go where no one has gone before
No one
No one

    General CommentThis is definitely the bast song by Matthew good band. Its really old - I think it's only availale on cassette. I can never find it anywhere anymore - but I have an mp3 of it.

    I think this song talks about dreams and how they get crushed under the feet of people who think their higher than you. He speaks about how you think about tomorrow to get yourself through the night. The title means nothing to many people until they think about it.

    General CommentListen to this song and see what I mean by being the best ever.

    Bast = best, by the way.

    Oh - I heard that Matthew good was going solo
    Is that true?
