Maybe you'll find some peace of mind which is more than what I have
We say something is wrong and it is/ But I don't know the secrets
how to live either

Maybe you'll run away/ Maybe we'll run away from how we've been
feeling/ Maybe to us you'll cease to speak/ We'll be unable to keep
memory of you burning

I knew you when/ I knew you when I wanted to be like you
When your power, it was too much/ You could too easily walk across
the barriers, through the dwellings/ You wondered why it was because
as a child you were so able

You could organize the people/ So it came as no surprise that you
had the first and the most girlfriends/ You were our emcee of life
So it came as no surprise that you were an old man by twenty-one

I knew you when/ I knew you when I wanted to be like you
When doing well versus not doing well/ We'd say "whatever
that means"/ Doing well versus not doing well/ We'd say "whatever
that means"

I show the disgust on my face/ You try to please me in haste/ To
stop all of this family's bleeding/ Our mother, she tries to translate
She says it looks like hate/ But you kids are just heartbroken

I know it was hollow here/ All the achievement and the cheer that
left you feeling empty/ You wondered why it was because as a child
you were so able

I knew you when/ I knew you when I wanted to be like you
Maybe you'll find some peace of mind which is more than what I have
