you may find
that the world is harsh and cold
but you don't have to hold your tongue
or do just what you're told

or you may feel
weak, worried, or lonesome
like the whole world is caving in
and you may not overcome

but when you get back
from looking out or looking in
even the summer sweats around you
a leap of faith or a jump over mankind
push with quiet force
the non-believers will be left behind

a general rule:
you're treated as you would like to treat
and soon the tides will change
the decision is at your feet

and when you get back
from looking out or looking in
even the summer sweats around you
relax your body parts
and take the path less marked
let the pull and push surround you

put your slippers on instead
put your slippers on instead
put your slippers on instead and live forever
