It is too late now
You've committed the crime
You're walking away
But you're still doing the time
Sooner or later they will put you away,
away, away
It's not too late now
You're receiving the signs
You're shifting the boundaries of your mind
You're treading water
You can do it my way
my way, my way

You gotta do what you oughta
You gotta know where you are coming from
You've got no time to falter
To the beginning back to where we have begun
(My minds on fire, my minds on fire so help me yeah)!
I'm the kinda guy who leaves the scene of the crime
I'm the kinda guy who will be drawing the lines
I'm the kinda guy who will be wasting away
I'm the kinda guy who wants a rock shot to break my mind!

Times are changing
You've configured your lives
To blow up the boundaries of your minds
You never listen
always pushing away, away, away
It's not too late now
You're receiving the signs
You're sifting the foundry of your mind
You're treading water
You can do it my way
my way

You gotta do what you oughta
You gotta know where you are coming from
You've got no time to falter
To the beginning back to where we have begun
(My minds on fire, my minds on fire so help me yeah)!
I'm the kinda guy who leaves the scene of the crime
I'm the kinda guy who will be drawing the lines
I'm the kinda guy who will be wasting away
I'm the kinda guy who wants a rock shot to break my mind
