From the album, Chase This Light:

Before this world starts up again
It’s me and night
We wait for the sun
The kids and drunks head back inside

Well there’s lots of smart ideas
In books I never read
When the girls come talk to me
I wish to hell I had

Get up, Get up
Turn my ignition
Get up, Get up
Fight off the system
I play my little part in something big

I’ll accept with poise, with grace
When they draw my name from the lottery
And they’ll say all the salt in the world couldn’t melt that ice
I’m the one who gets away
I’m a New Jersey success story
And they’ll say: “Lord give me the chance to shake that hand”
They’ll say…

Back when I was younger
I was someone you’d have liken
Got an old guitar I’ve had for years, I’d let you buy
And I’ll tell you something else
That you ain’t dying enough to know
There’s still some living left when your prime comes and goes

Get up, Get up
Dance on the ceiling
Get up, Get up
Boy you must be dreaming
Rock on young savior
Don’t give up your hopes

I’ll accept with poise, with grace
When they draw my name from the lottery
And they’ll say all the salt in the world couldn’t melt that ice
I’m the one who gets away
I’m a New Jersey success story
And they’ll say: “Lord give me the chance to shake that hand”

I have one last wish
And it’s from my heart
Just let me down
Just let me down… easy

I’ll accept with poise, with grace
When they draw my name from the lottery
And they’ll say all the salt in the world couldn’t melt that ice
I’m the one who gets away
I’m a New Jersey success story
And they’ll say: “Lord give me the chance to shake his hand”
They’ll say…
