If you just want to know something.
All you got to do Is ask me.
Cause though the sunsets all around us
The truth is often plain to see.

I know you been going through some hard times
Yes I have been there too before
And thought the truth is sometimes hard to hear
It's harder still to ignore

It doesn't gotta be this way
You don't gotta worry about what everybody might say
You just gotta follow your heart.
Right now yeah man right from the start.

I know we don't always see eye to eye
I guess it's different things that were trying to find
But if we can't look each other stone cold in the face
Yes you know we might as well be blind.

Does not mean one of us is wrong man
Does not mean one of us is right
Does not mean yeah we just get along
Just because we don't fight

I be up sometimes, down sometimes
We're often in between but mostly in the middle
You be up sometimes, your down sometimes
We're often in between but mostly in the middle
I'm up sometimes, your down sometimes
We're often in between but mostly in the middle
You're up sometimes, I'm down sometimes
We're often in between but mostly in the middle
We be up sometimes, we're down sometimes
We're often in between but mostly in the middle

    General CommentI think it is talking about him talking to the people he doesn't agree with, basically just trying to create a bridge with the person, call a truce to stop arguing. This is a great song, and wonderful soloing in the last six or so minutes of it.

    General Commentsuch a strong song. however the music seems to overpower the lyrical power of it in many ways. like the guy before me said, the solo-ing is unbelievable.

    wow

    General Commenton the album it goes for 21 minutes. And the last 15 minutes or so have birds tweeting etc. then something like a chainsaw starts up and it stops. Its kind of shocking... Can anyone explain?

    General CommentI couldnt hear the chainsaw bit.. had it turned up with my ear next to the speakers. I think i can hear faint chainsaws in the background of the birds though..
