I don't feel the sun's coming out today
It's staying in... It's gonna find another way(yeah)
As I sit here in this misery I don't
Think I'll ever See the sun from here

And oh as I fade away
They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
Hey, look at him I'll never live that way
But that's ok,
They're just afraid to change

And when you feel life ain't worth living
You've got to stand up, and
Take a look around, then you look up way to the sky
And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
Keep on dreamin' boy, 'cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die

And as we all play parts of tomorrow
Some ways we'll work, and other ways we'll play
But I know we can't all stay here forever
So I will write my words on the face of today....
And they'll paint it

And oh As I fade away
They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say
Hey look at him, and where he is these days
When life is hard you have to change
When life is hard you have to change

My brain wants to change the final line to, "Life is hard when you have to change". Gives it a different feel.
This is so much better than their big hit song.
What a voice, goosebumps!

I met Glenn Graham, the drummer, a few years after this album - serious musician, nice family, good renter.  Hope that he's still productive and doing what he loves.

Same here. Hotboxing the car in the 90's and listening to this album.
Yes. Great choice. We we used to listen to this album like crazy in high school back in the 90's. Probably went through about 3 of these tapes. We used to pan the song to one side so it was just vocals. Made my day, thank you.
 Well, My pet dream of tomorrow.
One of the tracks to my teenage years! Yeehaa!
OW
Turning it way up.
UGH!

I get chills every time he gets to the part "When you feel life ain't worth livin"...I hear echos of Janice in that voice.  A shame that he was gone too soon.

 
well, if he is so great then he left just in time like all the other greats before him...
I'll never get sick of this song!  Or this album.  Truly underrated talent, and a sound that keeps me interested.  Too bad Shannon Hoon had to be such a wild man.
 
it may not be everyone's darlin, but I really love this album
 
Never heard this group--sorry short-lived...riffing some Allman Bros.
