Meat Puppets – On lyrics
[Verse 1]
You fools, you geniuses
Take your flight to the dawn
The all in its emptiness
Makes a break for the sun
And the moon in its sights
Keeps the tide from rolling on

[Chorus]
On, on

[Verse 2]
There in the afterglow
When the feelings are all gone
The stars float across the sky
To escape from the sun
But the high life is a straggler
And it keeps on holding on

[Chorus]
On, on

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
Somewhere in my empty head
I hear a distant song
And it sings to the end of day
And after the day is gone
Like an old broken record
It just keeps on playing on

[Chorus]
On, on

[Outro]
Like an old broken record
It just keeps on playing on
On, on
