Lyrics (written by Jakubowski):

I don’t think about what’s at the end of the track
I’m on a one stop ride and I don’t know my way back
But the train keeps rolling and it’s rolling so fast
Rolling it’s wheels away from the past
I’m trying to drive it through to a satisfied mind
But it’s hard to put your thoughts to bed
When those rolling blues are rolling around in your head

My empty house isn’t home to me anymore
It's just an empty shell that I’m always heading towards
I’ve been kicking this can all over the street
Like I’m kicking myself to where I’ve wanted to be
Oh the years go by in the blink of an eye if you just don’t chose anything
A man can be many different things
Rolling blues are often the tune that he sings

People tell me to think of time as a friend
It always treats you fair and it has no rules to bend
And I never knew it but now I think it’s true
It is what it is and it’s mine to use
I’ve been watching sand slip through my hands like a fool
For when time is low and the day is done
Those blues are rolling and they have to land on someone
