Break it or leave it
Shake it or shove it
What does it matter now?
The damage, my friend, has been done
Has been done
Witness the broken bough

The talk on the airwaves
Is showing its teeth
They talk about the bomb
But fret not, fret not
And don't bat an eye
I'll tell you what went wrong

I spent a long time
In the pipeline
I did my time in school
I did the math
And I made my very own estimate
With the golden rule

How to proceed
With no sense of entitlement
Go where the sun don't shine
There's never any shortage
Of people in this world
Driving me out of my mind

Meridian, meridian
Lay down the line
Help us get there
And back on time
Show us the road
And we'll meet you on the other side
Time waits for no man
So we must say goodbye

Sometimes it's hard to see here
By the light of day
Something easy on the eyes
You think you're fooling everyone
But you are just the number one
Believer of your own pack of lies

Every time some new kind
Of shit goes down
It looks like more
And more of the same
Funny how the guilt is too much to bear
Even when we feel no shame

Meridian, meridian
Lay down the line
Help us get there
And back on time
Show us the road
And we'll meet you on the other side
Time waits for no man
We must say goodbye

To the line in the sand
That crept like a spider to bite us
Goodbye
To the knife in the hand
Of the sworn enemy who's inside us
Goodbye
To the sound of our names
On a tongue that would try to alight us
Goodbye
To the faces we wore
To identify or to hide us
