caught in a cave-in at the data mine
i'm reading palms. i'm looking into eyes
i do my hair the way the demons like
and swear tonight i will be dynomite
and i am happy as a firefly
in the moment when the fire dies

we're making progress still a ways to go
shoulder to shoulder at the waterhole
buildings leaping with a single bound
cats and dogs are falling from the clouds
there are lots of ways to get around
do what you can. you make your mother proud

mournful and slow
the only way to go

someone's always got to pull a knife
whatever happened to a good clean fair fight?
we called the cops. we waited on the line. dial nine
the beautiful bastard was a friend of mine
you say good morning then you say goodnight
i hope to see you on the other side

mournful and slow
the only way to go

it could happen any day or night
what if life is not a prototype
you mind your business i will mind my own
you get the door and i will get the phone
we fall asleep with the tv on
in the middle of a marathon

mournful and slow
the only way i know

but that was then. and this is now. right now
here i am at the speed of sound
you get some money every other week. pay check
get out of debt just enough to be well fed
you feed the fish and then you walk the dog
the kitchen counter's getting waterlogged
once and for all this is the curtain call
the bullethole in the waterfall

mournful and slow
the only way to go
