Keep your eye on the flipping coin
You can call it in the air if you try, kid
Take your knife to the table
Let the whole world know what your name is

A fever of initiative that storms the mind
Like closed eyes flashing lightning
As if it mattered if they tried
Could only resemble the rise of something frightening

Soon we'll have nowhere to go
But home

Take a pilgrimage across the seas
Like your great daddy did
See if who you are is really far
From the place that you are in

Leave the boy to his legend
Leave out your instruction
And if the powers that be
Put the powers in me
Then I'll sing 'til all statues
Lay in shattered destruction
And the panic in me
Will cry a flickering plea

Soon we'll have nowhere to go
But home
