It's Alright Lyrics

I know change is a bad thing,

Breaks me down into a sorry sad thing

Not some iridescent grateful butterfly.

I'll resist with defiance,

Not the valor of a mystic silence,

I will fight the dizzy spiral of goodbye.



And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright



Please don't say you don't love me,

Never dangle any sword above me,

With the kind of change that severs me in two.

Give me amberizing glasses.

Could you slow it down like molasses,

As I salvage my old self away from you.



And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.



Because I have seen insane things,

All those grand, historic paintings.

Morning light on polished swords and burnished pride.

Anxious smiles encased in whalebone,

Spines of steel from head to tailbone,

Cannons poised to blast the turning of the tide.



It's a sad and a strange thing.

But it's time and I am changing.

Into something good or bad, well that's your guess.

I'm my own sovereign nation,

Dedicated to a transformation,

Marching on with this target on my chest, oh yes,

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
