"TICKET"

Verse 1
Take my stereo and my laptop away.
Take my dog, and my cool lookin' shades.
Take my car, and my cellular phone,
My leather boots, yeah, everything that I own.
You can have my guitar, my amp and CDs.
Take my apartment, video and TV.
I don't need anything, be it old or new,
As long as I'm on that train sitting right next to you, 'cause …

Bridge
I got a feelin', it's time for basic necessities,
All that I'm needin' is my ticket to the Heavenlies.

Verse 2
Don't call the doctor 'cause I'm not sick,
Just breakin' loose from the things that had a grip.
Maybe you're thinkin' that I've lost control,
Or that I'm affected by drugs and alcohol.
Take my leather jacket, it's hangin' on the wall.
And while you're there can you give my boss a call?
Tell him I won't be comin' in and that I'm through
With clockin' in nine to five. Got somethin' better to do.

Chorus
The whistle's blowin', it's boarding time for that train.
The signs are showin' it won't be comin' through again.
A one way destination. No time for hesitation.
Tickets are free, yeah. It's an open invitation.

Verse 3
Went to the station, with my ticket in hand.
It's a wild idea, but you've gotta' understand
Been fillin' my world with possessions and things.
But they don't satisfy with the rush that freedom brings.
My baby came runnin', & wavin' her hands.
She's comin' with me, God knows I'm a happy man.
Leavin' all behind, we'll be rollin' up those tracks,
On the train to Paradise there's no turnin' back.

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Chorus twice
