lyrics

I've got angels in my pocket, I've got demons in my head,
they want to take me down
I've got wisdom in a locket, full of all the things you said,
can they help me now?
and This rat race keeps on eatin' the bread that I need to survive

I've got ghosts pullin' my shoelace, I've got spirits in my tongue,
they want to steer me wrong
I've got visions of a new place where we all sing a new song,
can they keep me on?
This rat race keeps on eatin' the bread that I need to survive.

I don't just wanna survive - I wanna live, live, live this life
I've got wisdom in my pocket, I've got visions of a new place
Give me life, life, life
Give me life, life, life

You've got baggage in a suitcase, You've got voices in your soul,
don't wanna let you go
You've got limitless horizons, full of destinations
more than you can know
and This rat race keeps on eatin' the bread that you need to survive

I don't just wanna survive - I wanna live, live, live this life
I've got wisdom in my pocket, I've got visions of a new place
Give me life, life, life
Give me life, life, life

Lay your burdens down - take, oh take this life
milk and honey flow - more than you can know
Take this bread, drink this wine - take life, life, life.
