The bear lies down and the world exhales
A damn good reason it never fails
The bear stands up to the winter gales
Waving like he’s trying to fly
The bear lies down and the world exhales

She’s out the door that she kicked and dented
Endless threats but this time she meant it
He lay so ill but he lied so well
And he justified the means in the end
The bear lies down and the world exhales

"Take her out and make her laugh and be like me"
So he takes her out and she makes him laugh enviously
She hesitates to think it
So she’ll raise a glass to drink it
Leaving others free to whisper on the air

The bear lies down and the world exhales
Bowls of cherries and beds of nails
His heart though still through a force of will
Was revealed in every note that he played
The bear lies down and the world exhales

The bear lies down and the earth is quiet
Pitstop bender and car crash diet
You were far too near to hold so dear
When we value what requires us to reach
The bear lies down and the world exhales

No symphony of grieving
No overture of weeping
My brother crazy mirror don’t despair
The bear lies down
