Itís not what you remember,
Itís not what you can count on just one hand,
Itís not how you can fly the flag of definitive action,
Or play the link in a chain reaction,
ďI clocked you going 40 in a 30 mile zone.Ē
ďOfficer, Iím sorry Iím so far away from home.Ē
Itís every inclination,
Itís every time you wanna stop and turn around.
Itís just how you can dive head first in a pool of water
Without even giving just a single thought to
The monsters that lie waiting at the bottom of the pool,
Like a child at the bus stop on his first day of school.
Itís how we say ďLet me out of here!Ē
But we donít have the foggiest idea of what it means
To be left cold and slowly dying.
And the freezing man that I met tonight,
Well he grabbed my wrist and he held it tight,
He said ďSoon youíll sing your freedom song,
But come along into the alley first.
You look so young and Iím dying of thirst.Ē
Sometime weíre bound to lose for our pretense and
But if the whole world does come crashing down
Whoíll bend their knees and kiss the ground with me?
