From the recording Life Aint That Long


What is it that you want
This time?
Can you put it into words?
Would you know it if it bit you?
Could you wrap your fingers around
Those dreams that are put there to kill you?
Tomorrow’s lying face down in the road
Congratulations! You’re our one millionth new Tom Joad.
But if you don't believe what’s just been said
This is a wake-up call
But are you already dead?
Listen up Brothers and Sisters
What is it that you want?
What is it that you want?
Yes you.
Face facts
You better fucking think this through.
But you don’t know what you want, do you?
Here’s a mirror.  Tell the truth.
You laugh. You smile. But you’re just a liar
You're blowing smoke but without the fire
You say you can live without desire?
Can you name anyone else who would even want to?
Can I get a witness brothers and sisters?
What is it that you what?
Is it a brand new car?
A brand new wife?
A good night’s sleep?
A decent life?
To die in your own bed with your loved one’s near?
Your soul to keep?
Or just one more year?
Do you want to sing to hear to see
To walk to talk to live to breathe
To know deep in your soul
That you were once worth something to someone
That you ain’t yet died inside
That your ship ain't sailed its last time
And when it all finally slips away
That your life has been one hell of a stay
Testify for me Brothers and Sisters
What is it that you what?
