Lyrics

After the glow, the scene, the stage
The sad talk becomes slow
But there's one thing I'll never forget
Hey, you gotta pay your dues
Before you pay the rent

Over the turnstiles and out in the traffic
There's ways of livin', it's the way I'm livin' right or wrong
It's all that I can do and I wouldn't wanna let you be

I wanna range life
If I could settle down
If I could settle down
Then I would settle down

I wanna range life
If I could settle down
If I could settle down
Then I would settle down

Run from the pigs, the fuzz, the cops, the heat
Pass me your gloves
This crime, it is never complete
Until you snort it up or shoot it down
You're never gonna feel free

Out on my skateboard the night is just humming
And the gumsmacks are the pulse I'll follow
If my walkman fades
Well, I got absolutely no one
No one but myself to blame

Don't worry, we're in no hurry
Schools out
What did you expect?

I wanna range life
If I could settle down
If I could settle down
Then I would settle down

I wanna range life
If I could settle down
If I could setle down
Then I would settle down

Yeah

Out on tour with Smashing Pumpkins
Nature kids
I, they don't have no function
I don't understand what they mean
And I could really give a fuck

Stone Temple Pilots, they're elegant bachelors
They're foxy to me, are they foxy to you?
I will agree they deserve absolutely nothin'
Nothin' more than me

Dreamin' dream, dream, dream, dream, dream

So alive
