I hitched a ride with my soul
By the side of the road
Just as the sky turned black
I took a walk with my fame
Down memory lane
I never did find my way back
You know that I gotta say time's slipping away
And what will it hold for me
What am I gonna do while I'm looking at you
You're standing ignoring me

I thought that I heard someone say now
There's no time for running away now
Hey now! Hey now

Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame

The first thing I saw
As I walked through the door
Was a sign on the wall that read
It said you might never know
That I want you to know
What is written inside of your head
And time as it stands
Won't be held in my hands
Or living inside of my skin
And as it fell from the sky
I asked myself why
Can I never let anyone in?

I thought that I heard someone say now
There's no time for running away now
Hey now, hey now!

Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame

Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame

I hitched a ride with my soul
By the side of the road
Just as the sky turned black
I took a walk with my fame
Down memory lane
I never did find my way back
You know that I gotta say time's slipping away
And what will it hold for me
What am I gonna do while I'm looking at you
You're standing ignoring me

I thought that I heard someone say now
There's no time for running away now
Hey now, hey now
Hey now, hey now
Hey now, hey now
Hey now, hey now, hey now

Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame 'cause time's no chain
Feel no shame

    General CommentThe song is about the band becoming famous and the things that happened to them.

    In the first verse he is talking about the fame that they got so quickly. And finding it hard to get 'back down to earth' and communicate with other non famous people.

    In th next two verses he is feeling the emotion that I would imagien all famous people feel. What else can I do? Is this my peak? And someone says to him 'there's no time for running away'.

    Feel no shame is about not feeling guilty just because you are rich and succesful. It just happens to some people.

    Then after that is just the same really. My favourite part of the sogn is 'as i feel from the sky i asked myself why can't i ever let anyone in' This is just talkign about how h started to find it how hard it is to trust people.

    Good song.
