From the album American Garage

Lyrics

Tilt-a-Whirl

In a perfect world everyone smiles
Enemies rest for a while
And talk about new ways to let it be

Where the old schools learn how to change
And old targets seem outta range
You never have to breath a sigh of relief

But through the smoke it gets hard to see
That we’re the ones holding the key
To help the children ride a safe spinning world…
Not some old tired Tilt A Whirl

In a perfect world there’s no melty ice
Cause the sun and the earth get along nice
And the oceans always keep a nice steady roll

And in a perfect world there’s no rising tide
And you never feel the need to jump from the ride
Cause someone forgot to watch over their controls

But through the smoke it gets hard to see
That we’re the ones holding the key
To help the children ride a safe spinning world…
Not some old tired tilt a whirl

Instrumental/solo

Bridge
Don’t wanna roll outta bed and step into the water below
I like a breeze on my head and beach sand between my toes
But I feel like we’ve lost control
When the world starts to lookin’ old
And we’re spiraling where we’ve been hurled
Like a champagne tipsy girl,
Like an old tired Tilt A Whirl

In a perfect world everyone’s free
To lay beneath the shade of a tree
And read the words they choose to believe
Yeah in a perfect world everyone smiles
Enemies rest for a while
And talk about new ways to let it be

Chorus

But through the smoke it gets hard to see
That we’re the ones holding the key
To help the children ride a safe spinning world…
Not some old tired tilt a whirl
