It's Only Life

Album: Port Of Morrow (2012)
  • Died in the world, you've been cornered by a natural desire
    You want to hop along with the giddy throng through life
    But how will you learn to steer when you're grinding all your gears?

    You've been talking for hours
    You say time will wash every tower to the sea
    And now you've got this worry in your heart

    Well I guess it's only life, it's only natural
    We all spend a little while going down the rabbit hole
    The things they taught you, they're lining up to haunt you
    You got your back against the wall
    I call you on the telephone, won't you pick up the receiver?

    I've been down the very road you're walking now
    It doesn't have to be so dark and lonesome
    It takes a while but we can figure this thing out
    And turn it back around

    You used to be such a lion
    Before you got into all this crying on my lap
    Back when you thought I'd never get this far

    But did you really think I'd shut an open door?
    The future's calling and I'mma answer her
    The wheels in motion, I never drank your potion
    And I know it breaks your heart
    Open up your parachute, something's gotta stop the free fall

    I've been down the very road you're walking now
    It doesn't have to be so dark and lonesome
    It takes a while but we can figure this thing out
    And turn it back around Writer/s: JAMES MERCER
