"On and On and On" as written by Julian Godfrey Brookhouse, Miguel Drummond, Ben Volpeliere-pierrot, Michael John Mcevoy and Nicholas Bernard Thorp....
The sun and the moon never change
They just rearrange, the night and the new day
Gold exchanges for silver
And a light on a river gets carried away

On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on

I lift up my head and I wonder
Just who it is calming, calling my name now
I trip on my way and I blunder
My head falling under a blanket of shame

On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on

High and low may I go
But God only knows just where I am going
High and low may I go
But God only knows just where I am going

The people around me won't let me
Become what I need to, they want me the same
I look at myself and I want to
Just cover my eyes and give myself a new name

The storms in the sky never worry
They don't have to hurry, they move in their own way
But I have to choose what to do
How to act, what to think, how to talk, what to say

On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on

On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on
On and on, on and on

    General CommentI think it's about Jack going for a night stroll (maybe mentally) and trying to think of what he has to do now, probably after his break with The White Stripes and his divorce.
    I think it also sounds a bit like what you have in a mid-life crisis...

    Lyric CorrectionThe sun and the moon never change
    They just rearrange
    The night and the new day
    Gold exchanges for silver
    And the light on a river
    Gets carried away

    On and on, on and on

    I lift my head up and I wonder
    Just who is it
    Calling my name now
    I trip on my way and I blunder
    My head falling under
    A blanket of shame

    On and on, on and on

    High and low may I go
    But God only knows
    Just where I am going

    The people around me
    Wont let me become what I need to
    They want me the same
    I look at myself and I want to
    Just cover my eyes and
    Give myself a new name

    The stones in the sky never worry
    They don't have to hurry
    They move in their own way
    But I have to choose what to do
    How to act, what to think
    How to talk, what to say

    On and on, on and on
