On Track


You can't erase or rearrange
You can't rewind, you can't go back
You gotta get your life on track
Nor pontificate nor contemplate your fate
We're all walking in the dark
Just pray you're gonna get to heaven's gate

Just as life is for living
So love is for giving
Life's no simple situation
There's the added complication
That the reason that we're here
Nobody knows in all creation

You can't erase or rearrange
You can't rewind, you can't go back
You gotta get your life on track
Nor pontificate nor contemplate your fate
We're all walking in the dark
Just pray you're gonna get to heaven's gate

Just as life is for living
So love is for giving
Life's no simple situation
There's the added complication
That the reason that we're here
Nobody knows in all creation

If you don't give, you don't get
Didn't you learn that yet
As you stand on your own barbette
If you don't give, you don't get

If you don't give, you don't get
Didn't you learn that yet
As you stand on your own barbette
If you don't give, you don't get

You can't erase or rearrange
You can't rewind, you can't go back
You gotta get your life on track
Nor pontificate nor contemplate your fate
We're all walking in the dark
Just pray you're gonna get to heaven's gate

You lit a fuse
You can't return
You might get burned, you can't go back
You gotta get your life on track

Reactivate and celebrate the day
Don't hesitate to step over all the obstructions
In your way

See that life is for living
So love is for giving
Life's no simple situation
There's the added complication
That the reason that we're here
Nobody knows in all creation

On Track was written for the soundtrack of the two-part Russian sci-fi movie, Paragraph 78. It was used in the closing titles of the first part of the movie. This version was 20 seconds longer as compared to the TWIY album version, and was lighter as to the orchestral arrangement.
