Original video
Gonna get out on the road tonight
'Cause I got a hollow in my head
I'm just checking it up
Baby, one more time for you
Checking it up
Until the pot hits the sky

It's like I think I'm sick of cocaine
But I, I've got a feeling like it's running in my brains
Just checking it up
Baby,one more time for you
Checking it up
Until the pot hits the sky

Even the best best years
Leave a lot to be desired
And then they pass you by

All these seasons
All this time spining past you
They leave you all behind
Lay me down in the circle
Where the spotlight shines
All this pleasure gets me high

Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo, yeah
Doo doo doo doo

Some people will cut you until you're bleeding
But not me, 'cause I just want to do it to myself
I'm just checking it up
Baby, one more time for you
Checking it up
Until the pot hits the sky

Well, even the best years
Are a waste of time
But baby, I'm a big star now

All, all, all these seasons
All this time spining past
Til they leave you all behind
Lay me down in a circle
Where the spotlight shines
All this pleasure gets me high

All these seasons
All this time spinning past
Till they leave you all behind
Lay me down in the circle where the spotlight shines
Turn your back on the people who draw the line

Put your faith in the answers that you can find
Hit the ground hard running down that highway line
Say a prayer for the ones you have left behind
All this pleasure gets me high

Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo, yeah
Doo

Well I don't want to give it back, no
And I don't want to give it back, no
Said I don't want to give it back, oh
I don't want to give it back, oh oh

Well I don't want to give it back, come on
And I don't want to give it back, come on
Said I don't want to give it back, oh
Said I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to give it back

I don't want to give it back, come on
Yeah I don't want to give it back, come on
Said I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to give it back, come on

I don't want to give it back, come on
Said I don't want to give it back, come on
Said I don't want to, no no
I don't want to give it back, come on
