Sing while you still can
and dance every chance
for even if your legs hurt you straight to the bone
i promise you'll thank me someday
for everyone fades
or they'll burn out anyway
"time" is something i dont understand
(just) promise you won't look away

love hard and long
yeah it give it all away
for someday when you're standing all alone
you'll realize it couldn't be saved
good fathers pass away
and good mothers will too someday
the problem is that entirely too late
you realize you had more to say

i'm sorry little girl
you are awake today
in a world that dreams no more
i'm so sorry little girl
no one fights for what's right any more
no one dances or sings anymore
when everyone's numb and they say it's ok
oh, i'm so sorry little girl

no one stands alone anymore
everyone begs to be adored
in a world thats build out of sand
oh i'm so sorry little girl

and "time" it will be the death

someday they'll see the distances growing from the earth to my feet
someday we'll see, yeah, distances growing from the earth to my feet

    General CommentMaybe it's just ironic that Scogin recently had a child, a little girl. Maybe his faith in Jesus Christ, which he openly professes on The Chariots first tour dvd is a part of it too. Theres the obvious tone of mortality, the fact that this is our only chance, so "dance every chance". It sounds like he's expressing his sadness at the pain in the world, and telling his daughter to live for all its worth. Because "some day we'll see, the distance is growing from the earth to [our] feet".
