I woke up on the wrong side
I didn't apologize
The way I feel is groundless
I mean it's written in the skies

And I could take my chances
And ask myself to change
But nobody ever dances these days
And we don't sing in the rain

Time is nothing personal
I took time out to be polite
They arrested me for forgery
Because I got it right

And I might be in prison
Where they tally time with chalk
Because nobody follows the birds these days
Everyone would rather walk

The leaves are doing somersaults
Since summer's hair went gray
They look for any reason at all
To bow their heads and blow away

And I brought along the evidence
This camera behind my eyes
But everyone needs documentation these days
Nobody is reading minds

A bluebird ate a spider
All the worms stayed underground
And I once loved a woman
Who never made a sound

And it might have been for always
But luckily it rained
Because nobody has any patience these days
We all want something in between

I know an aging doctor
I let him read my chart
Then he shined a light right through me
And it came out question marks

And then he shrugged his shoulders and said
Go forth and run and hide
But you're just like all the others I've seen
A skeleton inside

I saw my friends jump overboard
The ship forgot to look
Then the passengers got out their microscopes
To see just who the water took

And I would pledge allegiance
To that lifeboat on the sea
But everyone wants to be dead these days
Or else they want to be free
