And We Ride/Open Days

I knew when you saw me you'd ask me no more.

You'd seen me behind you, we all know the score.

A man who's not rich still has money to spend

To get to the top when he gets to the end.

  And we ride, yes we ride,

  And sometimes we try not to hide.

Open your arms, and I'll open my mind,

Though what you might see there is not hard to find.

Find your way out, and just run to the door.

You'll see me behind you, we all know the score,

  But we ride, yes we ride,

  It's always been easy to hide.

  It's always been easy to hide.

Stairways leading to the other side;

Marching ahead, and then stopping to hide

Child falling down, and just starting to cry;

Just step around, and we'll leave him to die.

  Crossing the river, got to go on.

  Crossing the river, got to flow on.

  Stealing for time, get the day on our side.

  Stealing it all, got the day on this time,

    Got the day on

      All the way, all today.

      Nobody knows my name.

      Nobody's got to know my name.

      All the way, and it's still the same today.

Laughter echoes softly in the blackness.

Are you still trying to be free?

Why not give up all the sorrow and pain?

It's so much more fun to believe in the rain.

  Crossing the river, got to go on.

  Crossing the river, got to flow on.

  Stealing for time, get the day on our side.

  Stealing it all, got the day on this time,

    Got the day on time, got the day on time

    Got the day on time, got the day on

      All the way, all today.

      Nobody knows my name.

      Nobody's got to know my name.

      All the way, and it's still the same today.

        All today.
