  • And if you see it layin' round, it's alright to take it
    It's nothin at all, and if nobody saw, who knew?
    But if the circumstance is right and your mistaken
    I can't determine off hand, but I'd say its quite a few
    There's a serious lack of forgettable facts and who makes them
    If the word makes print there's no reason to think at all
    Don't be sensitive or reluctant to confession
    It's obvious who's the victim half the time
    Never speak too soon when an idea needs to level
    That declarations can be made won't make them true
    And if you don't make room in your backpack for the devil
    You'll have the weight of the world lifted off your shoulders too

    Now I don't mean to be misleading
    And I would hate to complicate your point of view
    But if you really just presume that's my impression now of you
    Well there's a lot of ground to cover, and even more than we need to talk through.

    Now if you haven't gone too far by now don't worry
    If you're stuck in the crowd and you've been thinking out loud, I'd stop
    Now I'm not suggesting here that you should hurry
    But if everyone's out for theirs, can there be enough?
    Don't be flustered by your falls while they're occurring
    They won't be factored in to the final score at all
    So if morality calls you up and leaves a message
    It's always better advice, so I would listen to it more than twice

    Now I don't mean to be misleading,
    And I would hate to complicate your point of view
    I'm only trying to pass on words you need to hear
    The explanations up to you
    It's not enough to just show up with only words to say
    There's more to this that I just can't explain
    And if you really just presume that's my impression now of you,
    Well there's a lot of ground to cover,
    even more than we need to talk through. Writer/s: BRENDAN BAYLISS
