lyrics

Am I talking to myself in an empty room
Or am I with the wolves howling at the moon
Or am I either of the two

And if I stuck a spanner right into the works
Would everything just fall apart and tumble to the earth
I mean really, what’s the worst thing that could happen

Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
And I’ll pick up the baggage when I’m gone

It’s a dangerous thing to try and do it all
Walking around like you’re ten foot tall
Sooner or later someone’s going find out who you are

I’m counting the reasons for staying at work
Who’s to benefit and tell me what’s the worth
But I can’t come up with no answers

Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
And I’ll pick up the baggage when I’m gone

See over there, man, that’s where I live
See me know now, this is me changing
And I hope to God it’s for the better

Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
Let me roll on (roll on)
And I’ll pick up the baggage when I’m gone
