That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do

But all the things that you've seen

How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall

How your garden grows cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain?
In the morning rain as it soaks you to the bone

Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine
Some might say that we should never ponder
On our thoughts today cos they hold sway over time
Some might say we will find a brighter day
