Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has come
When all else fails, claim it's rigged.
And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet,
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk.
"How can I be, all I want to be,
When all I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints
And crush this charade, shred this sad, masquerade"
And down your streets I've walked alone
As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I chose, doors I have opened and closed
I got my tickets and a reservation set for two,
Luggage waiting on the track,
But I got no use for reservations without you,
I got to give the tickets back
I see your face drive like a stolen car.
Gets harder to hide, when you're hitching a ride.
Harder to hide what you really saw.
In come the cops
They blowtorch the doors
I start wailing
The lion roars
There's no good way to end this
Anyone can see
There's this great big you
And little old me
"It is not length of life, but depth of life." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Thought breeds thought." ~ Henry David Thoreau
Grabbing for me with her eyes
Now Iím falling from her skies
No sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
I've been listening to all the dissension
I've been listening to all the pain
And I think that I can heal it
With this song
You showed me how, how to leave myself behind
How to turn down the noise in my mind
Now I haven't got time for the pain
