That unheard call Those narrow walls Walked a man who knew his fate yet would not show it on his face Stiff upper lip His final trip Would not give til' unconsciously his past of fun had sold his life away I will show you what you need to live Though you're not here I am strong People live their lives so carefree Never knowing til' it's gone ...All of you That acute smell He knew it well The reek of an institution filled with sterile personalities I walked right in Unknowing grin Not returned for the simple fact in the future he would not be able to see me I...won't let him die, in me he'll be alive I...can't see this through, how much of this can ever be true I...won't live this way, here I'll stay I...can hardly see, without him, for him I'll strive to be
