Lyrics

As a measure of the soul

Ever done run bring your fear

You and me, we got the same air goin'

Breathin' here

You got send to toad water, you been

Like someone left to cold half breathin'

Maybe me and the Queen could take another over

Walk it away, yeah


Oh little wish it away

I got time to wish away

Little wish it away


Head look about the free

Like a dumb hombre on wheels

I might take the tee mind over

Load and see

I done kicked a hole wide lookin'

A gapin' half to free mind mover

Maybe me and the Queen can give a side order

Love it away well


Oh little wish it away

I got time to wish away

Little wish it away


She don't hang.
