"Jefferson Airplane (demo)" as written by and Wesley Willis....
I think we're going somewhere.
We're on to something good here.
Out of mind, out of state.
Trying to keep my head on straight.
I think we're going somewhere.
We're on to something good here.
There's only one thing left to do.
Drop all I have and go with you.

[Chorus]
Somewhere back there I left my worries all behind.
My problems fell out of the back of my mind.
We're going and I'm never knowing (never knowing) where we're going.
To go back to where I was would just be wrong.
I'm pressing on.
Pressing on, all my distress is going, going, gone. (pressing on, pressing on)
And I won't sit back, and take this anymore.
'Cause I'm done with that, I've got one foot out the door.
And to go back where I was would just be wrong
I'm pressing on.

I think we're going somewhere.
We're on to something good here.
Out of mind, out of state.
Trying to keep my head on straight.
I think we're going somewhere.
We're on to something good here.
Adversity, we get around it.
Searched for joy, in you I found it.

[Chorus x2]

You look down on me, but you don't look down on me at all.
You smile and laugh, and I feel the love you have for me.
I think we're going somewhere.
We're on to something good here, and we're gonna make it after all.

    General Commenti don't think they are letting go of their strong cchristian lyrics - there are some amazing songs on here, like "i am understood" and "getting into you" which i think show the growth as christians the band has. I don't understand anything this song is saying, but i'm sure it's nothing anti-christian...

    General CommentTo me this song is talking about how the singer is lonely, and feels like he is kinda trapped in his own world. He is feeling down and a bit depressed. And then when he talks about "a surgery to purge me of this lonely mood" he is talking about how he is going to cheer up, and focus on the positive. The jefferson airplane and magic feathers represent things that he was trying to use to help him, but that were not really helping him at all. In the end he learns that he can fly all by himself and he cheers up and he says that "i've got with me all that i need" well if you listen to the whole song that is. I don't know what this whole "jefferson airplane demo" is - is it on an older cd? because the new one has a longer version of this song, and it isn't called a demo. Also -- I dont get what stargazer00 is going on about. I mean, this song is a guy singing about how he gets lonely - just because you get lonely, or feel depressed, does not mean you are not a good christian or that you are "lettong go of their strong christian lyrics" -- what is up with people always busting on christian bands for "not being as strong christians" ? I'm fed up with the critizism. This band is awesome. God is awesome. And they do a good job of having a christian point of view on life's realities

    General Commenti agree with puddle... the song also makes me think maybe they feel powerless to be a friend. It's so hard to maintain any kind of relationship when you're gone all of the time. It almost sounds like an apology to all of the people they had to say goodbye to, and are having trouble staying in touch with... i dunno, just an add on.

    i think christian bands that turn a little more secular are actually more clever than those that stay hardcore christian... I mean, hxc christian bands are great for the christians, but isn't it all about evangelism? sometimes you must become like the the people in order to win them over...

    General CommentI think the point of this song, to some extent, is that he's not gonna complain about the things that go wrong in his life, he's just going to accept them and deal with them, because bitching about them doesn't get you anywhere.

    anywho, their are lots of mistakes in with the lyrics of this song. i don't feel like pointing out all the corrections that need to be made right now though. ok well maybe i'll make some, because otherwise, the way it is now, kinda kills the purpose of the song.

    it should be "never said nothing WITH flowers" not "never said nothing but 'flowers'" and it should be "And it seems to get much colder when you cry on your own shoulder. We all know the show must go on, guess I know, I guess I'll throw on..." instead of what you have. and it should be "But I won't complain, I'll open all the windows" not "or open all the windows" because that typo defeats the purpose of the entire song. and... yeah there are other different things, but apparently this is just a "demo" so i'll submit the album version.

    General CommentI guess someone got on and changed the lyrics for some reason. The lyrics to the demo of Jefferson Airplane that I have are this:

    These are the lyrics for Pressing On! The lyrics for the Jefferson Airplane (demo) are this:

    If it hurts,
    Kiss it better
    You wear skirts,
    I write nice letters
    Never said nothing with flowers
    Though we always talked for hours
    And it seems to get much colder
    When you cry on your own shoulder
    And we know the show
    Must go on
    Guess I know
    I guess I'll throw on

    Some Jefferson Airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows
    Jefferson airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows

    'Cause when it's colder
    I feel much better
    When I cry on my own shoulder
    I'll just throw on a sweater and go

    And I'll go to where the weather's nice and warm
    And I'll go to where I am reborn
    And I'll go, cause in my dreams I can't complain
    And I'll go on my Jefferson Airplane

    You make the calls
    I'll cover my ears
    Niagra falls
    Still flows on New Year's
    I will save
    Your plunging neckline
    Kiss your face
    You try to deck mine
    If I behave it's going to cost him
    Skip the rave in downtown boston
    And we know the show
    Must go on
    Guess I know
    I guess I'll throw on

    Some Jefferson Airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows
    Jefferson airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows

    'Cause when it's colder
    I feel much better
    When I cry on my own shoulder
    I'll just throw on a sweater and go

    And I'll go to where the weather's nice and warm
    And I'll go to where in a sense, I am reborn
    And I'll go, cause in my dreams I can't complain
    And I'll fly on my Jefferson Airplane

    Jefferson Airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows
    Jefferson airplane
    I'm trapped and I am enclosed
    But I won't complain
    I'll open all the windows

    'Cause when it's colder
    I feel much better
    When I cry on my own shoulder
    I'll just throw on a sweater and go
