Your picture is far too big to look at kid. Your eyes won't open wide enough And you are constantly surrounded by the swirling stream Of what is and what was. Well, we've all made out predictions but the truth still isn't out. So if you want to see the future, go stare into a cloud. And keep trying to find your way out of that maze of memories. It all sort of looks familiar Until you get up close and it's different, clearly. But each time you turn a corner, You're right back where you were And your only hope is that forgetting might make a door appear. Is it your fear of being buried that makes you so afraid to speak? An avalanche of opinions Like the one that fell that I am now underneath. It was my voice that moved the first rock And I would do it all again. So I mean, it's cool if you keep quiet but I like singing. So I'll be holding my note and stomping and strumming And feeling so very lucky. There is nothing I know except that this lifetime is one moment And wishing will just leave me empty. So you can try and live in darkness but you will never shake the light. It will greet you every morning And it will make you more aware with its absence at night, When you're wrapped up in your blanket, Babe, that comfortable cocoon. But I have seen the day of your awakening boy and it's coming soon. So go ahead and lose yourself in liquor And you can praise the clouded mind But it isn't what
