Raging Slab Take a Hold Lyrics

You feel to find the handle
Of the thing you touch to pray
One day you find your hand gone blind
But they still can talk a tale
They can tell it on a mountain
The stone white lies
Made of books with plots so thick
You can climb them to the sky
What's the point of racecars,
Rocket ships and rock & roll?
Telephones go the speed of light
The truth cannot be told
And time just keeps on keepin' on
The world keeps turnin' down
This tiny life's eternal dance
Sittin', and spin around

Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster than a world should be
Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster (oh, when the world is turning faster)
Than a world should be (than a world should be)
Yeah

The moon will grow your garden
A stone and grow it high
Into buildings tall and strong
Beneath the scraping sky
It'll turn you while you're sleeping
It'll turn you in your bed
When you dream of things that stand so still
Everything seems dead
Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster than a world should be
Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster (oh, when the world is turning faster)
Than a world should be (than a world should be)
Yeah

You feel to find the handle
Of the thing you touch to pray
One day you find your hand gone blind
But they still can talk a tale
They can tell it on a mountain
The stone white lies
Made of books with plots so thick
You can climb them to the sky
And time just keeps on keepin' on
The world keeps turnin' down
This tiny life's eternal dance
Sittin', and spin around
It'll turn you while you're sleeping
It'll turn you in your bed
I can dream of things that stand so still
Everything seems dead
Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster than a world should be
Take a hold, take a hold
Oh, take a hold on me
When the world is turning faster
Than a world should be
Yeah

Mmmm, take a hold on me, yeah
