craze a chance
you learn to dance
most people they just go on
doing what they can
dont you know, dont you know
one feeds the monster
one feeds the soul

learn to see the old man
and he was sitting on his cracked land
dont you know hes tuning the wheel of everyday
and hes afraid of what he cant see
was it in the fire or the photograph

if its hard, its gunna get harder
if its hard, its gunna get harder
cause the babys crying
as the old man sighs
and the babys crying
as the old man sighs

-oh go hermonica solo-

would you go
would you try to look a man in the eye
-repeat 3 times-

learn to see the old man
and his cracked land
hes turning the wheel of everyday
you learn to see the old man
and his cracked land
hes turning th wheel of everyday
hes afraid of what he cant see
hes afraid of what he cant see
hes afraid of what he cant see
was it in the fire or the photograph

well if its hard, its gunna get harder
if its hard, its gunna get harder
cause the babys crying
as the old man sighs
well the babys crying
as the old man sighs

(-well the babys crying-)
the babys crying
the children scream
the old man sighs as i begin to dream

(-as the old man sighs-)
the babys crying
the children laugh
the old man sighs as i take that path
-repeat-

learn to see the old man
and his cracked land
hes turning the wheel of everyday
you learn to see the old man
and his cracked land
hes turning th wheel of everyday
hes afraid of what he cant see
hes afraid of what he cant see
hes afraid of what he cant see
was it in the fire or the photograph

    General Commenti dont know, i think its something about going back to your roots or something, like the past turns the wheel of everydau or something. also about how life is never easy. thats all ive got

    General Commenti think its symbolic of choices. the old man on the cracked land is old, paranoid of the past (fire) and future (photograph). the old man sighs at everything, as the babies cry. they are both indifferent. but, the children scream when Chad (the guy who sings that part) begins to dream, or waste time, like the old man. The children laugh, however, when Chad chooses a path and moves on. Therefore, i think this song is about change, and movement through life.

    General CommentMaybe it is about the choices you make and where those choices lead you, and about whether you will take chances and risks to make it somewhere or if you will stay in your comfort zone. We are scared to leave what we feel as comfortable but, as Dispatch points out, we need to. Our world is full of people lazy and scared, which makes the old man sigh. Maybe this old man never had to chance to dream, and now the wheels of his life are turning. Time is running out for this man. He is dissapointed with us for not doing more than what is neccessary. Maybe we should shoot for more. Make the future better rather than dwell in the past, as hard as it may be. Life isn't easy.

    General CommentI think it's about different choices and how one is always riskier but definitly the better choice and some people just play it safe. I think the old man maybe was pretty safe during his life and he's scared of the future because he never left his comfort zone
