lyrics

Here I am in the sun. I got my shoes and my shades on. One for all and all for one. As beggars we choose as the daylight fades.
Gone are the days and the hours and the minutes. As I'm looking at the sun I can see myself within it. The limits are broken. Get it spoken out loud with a passion. Flashing what it's all about.
Any other route is a little bit risky and a moment of doubt can last for eternity. You and me we got to wait and see. Every breath that I breathe is a clue that I'm home bound.
Is it true? After all I've been through? View it from sunrise all the way to sundown. Don't frown. Don't clown. Don't take it too serious. Forged by the heat until I'm delirious

Chorus:
I gotta stop and listen as I'm moving to the beat. In the sun and the sand with the Florida heat.

Sitting on the bench? Naw, I'm swinging for the fences. Hiding from the sun I'm in the shade and I'm defenseless. Getting restless. Moving to the beat. In past and present tenses crazy from the heatwave.
It's a sweepstakes. Aiming for the sweet spot. Oh, for pete sakes it's a wasteland and hot spot. In the crock pot, boiled alive. Crank the volume up I'm adding bacon and chives.
Take a moment to decide go outside, it's a gamble. My brain is cooking like an egg, you know I like them scrambled.
Rambling. Title bout. Shipping up and shipping small amounts like an ounce. Are you man or mouse? I got a bound in my leap. A step in my spring. There is air in the love. Yeah, you know what I mean.
Here's an answer, all of the above. Except for A and B and C. I think I've had enough of this.
Go and make a wish. We're going tit for tat. Forsaking all the breaking and shaking and all the taking crap. Go and clap, it's a trap. In fact, wheres the proof? All aloof in the air and It's everywhere. I dare you to find, a mental image of the mind. Doing well and doing time. Climbing high to read the signs.
Reading light. Blindness. Semper Fi your highness. The heat can drive you mad. You know that's how I came to write this.

Chorus

Furious, Curious and on the chopping block by the passing of the clock. It's a life of hard knocks. Better stop, if you're going too fast. Nothing ever lasts in the present of the past. Do the math.
It's a gas if you focus on what matters. It doesn't mean your happy just because your pocket's fatter. Remember when you were a kid and the treasures in your life were the things that you did with your time?
Are you hearing what I say? Are you doing what you can to make the best of everyday? Is it true that you're wasting all your time? Look into the sky. That energy's divine.
Can you find what it means? Are your dreams bearing fruit? Nothing lasts forever, including your youth. Better hustle if you want to make the grade. In the sun and the sand. You know I've got it made.
Fiction, action, the opposite reaction. Factions causing friction. Blitzing on a mission. Did I fail to mention positive intentions? If you're tense jump the fence. Looking for attention?
There's a chance if you're looking for a path. Open up your eyes and your heart. Take a bath in these rays of light. You have all that you need. There is gold raining from the sky with the Florida heat.
