A long time ago
Right down the walk
A boy carried a very heavy rock
in his pocket
Wherever he went
Wherever he ran,
However he bent.
It hurt his neck
and it hurt his side.
It hurt his back
and it hurt his pride.
It never really went away.
The rock was stuck
and there to stay.

The rock was always well concealed.
It was too big to be revealed.
Nobody knew or had any clue.
The boy made sure that nobody knew.

He'd seen this rock in a pocket before
Crush a spirit and slam a door.
It was horribly hard to see.
A normal kid he wanted to be.
As he grew he found out
What this rock was all about.
Under the doormat it was broomed.
The boy was determined not to be doomed.
Althought it was true it was a taboo.
The boy made sure that nobody knew.
Althought it was true it was a taboo.
The boy made sure that nobody knew.

Well this rock got in the way
of things that people do everyday.
The boy felt downright all alone.
He watched TV and talked on the phone.
It never gave him any satisfaction
but either way it was a distraction
and helped him get through the day.
He'd obsess rather than play
Grasp on to what was in reach,
always learn but never teach.

Learnin' slow,
feelin' behind,
the flashlight worked
but never shined.
The flashlight worked but never shined.
The flashlight worked but never shined.

Little black brief case
Stomach churn
Little black brief case
Won't you burn?

Playin' enforcer gets real old
When you got a rock that you gotta hold.
It gets real old when you're people pleasin',
Ya don't get much so what's the reason?
Sooner or later you'll have to talk.
You'll have to talk or you'll go nuts
Open the door before it shuts.
You'll have to talk or you'll go nuts
Open the door before it shuts.
The boy knew this and opened the door.
From the ceiling to the floor
A window stood he could not look through.
A window stood he could not look through.
He could not look through: it was insanity
Despair, and true calamity.

So he grabbed that rock right from his pocket
and launched it like a missile rocket
through the window so he could see
and breath the air that he needed to breathe.
So he grabbed that rock right from his pocket
and launched it like a missile rocket
through the window so he could see
and breath the air that he needed to breathe.

So he grabbed that rock right from his pocket
and launched it like a missile rocket
through the window so he could see
and breath the air that he needed to breathe.

A long time ago
Right down the walk
A boy carried a very heavy rock.
