young one, with more ahead than behind,
tell me, what are you setting out to find?
i heard you in the night
as you were putting yourself to bed,
and you said:

these borrowed arms will fend for me.
these borrowed eyes will let me see.
these borrowed legs will set me free,
but this borrowed mind won`t let me be.

old one, with more behind than ahead,
tell me, have we all been misled?
i heard you in the night
as you were putting yourself to bed,
and you said:

these borrowed arms won`t fend for me.
these borrowed eyes won`t let me see.
these borrowed legs won`t let me be.
but this borrowed heart will set me free.
