  • For your pleasure
    In our present state
    Part false part true
    Like anything

    We present ourselves
    The words we use tumble
    All over your shoulder
    Gravel hard and loose
    There all night lying
    With your dark horse hiding
    Abhorring such extremes
    You're rubbing shoulders
    With the stars at night
    Shining so bright
    Getting older

    But you'll wake up soon
    And fight
    In the morning
    Things you worried about
    Last night
    Will seem lighter
    I hope things
    Will turn out right
    Old man

    Through every step a change
    You watch me walk away
