The hammer drops and it seems things ain't auch a shock to everybody else -- but me, I'm hot -- what in the wide world is going on here? I paid my dues -- I was willing to volunteer -- now the fear starts to creep in from behind -- it whispers in my ear, 'do you remember that time?' I deny, point blank it's just a lie -- give me a chance and I'll make a clever reply -- never forget where the days come from -- never forget the dust we walk on -- from the mountain tops to the side walks let's shout out, shout out -- what we're all about -- so throw your fist up and raise your voice -- we'll never deny -- we all live to die -- now I explain my rationale with this fractional intelligence, that now seems irrelevant -- my mouth ain't going to save me now -- it twisted me into this tongue tied state and I gotta get out -- but I'm falling fast and picking up speed -- I'm realizing what I really should see might be bigger than me -- so I grab the chord on this enormous parachute and pull it -- please take me straight up like #1 with a bullet -- we move on, no matter what the cost -- straight through the night and never been lost -- from the mountaintops -- to side walks -- leave no doubt what we're about
