Stop The Flight - (First Demo)
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Sixteen hours to London Flying on a DC-10 I wonder if when this plane sets down
 I'll ever be able to walk again I spent thirty-five days in Europe Singing 'til my voice is gone Never time enough to get a good night's sleep What is this road that I've been running on? You've got to stop this flight I've got to get back to earth Hey, I'm a human being God knows what that's worth. I'm moving like a dancer on a darkened stage But I'll be risen from the prison at the end of the age. I've been locked up in the studio And this is no way to live They never like the music 'til the records sell And they always want more than you can possibly give. I've been struggling for inspiration And hoping that the songs won't flop I've been waiting like a beggar for the item to drop You got to live up to the contract 'til they tell you to stop. You've got to stop this flight Got to get back to earth We are human beings And God knows what that's worth. We're not meant to be imprisoned in this earthly cage And end up screamin' like a demon at the end of the age. We got to stop this flight We got to stop it Stop it, stop it!
