Where am I going on this long old road
so grown, grown up from the roots
They’ve taken all, and are too heavy for themselves
they’ve begun to fade away
Chop down the bitter wind, just cover me up
just grab a hold enough
To catch my breath, sinking, falling down
you’ve outgrown me too
Surge, doesn’t move, doesn’t work inside
parts, they clink, they clink collide
They all rust and fall, just like me
and they’ve done it to themselves

Oh, we’ve taken on too much
that’s all, we know it’s wrong
Oh, we muddied up so much
the key is simplicity, that’s all it is
Just remember, try to remember
when you were young

Survive until the end
And yes I’ve lost a friend
Lost that and so much more
They said I was a bore
The key: simplicity
Rings true in my city
But now the place has changed
It’s all been rearranged
We’re deaf from traffic noise
The men replaced the boys
But I remember once
The winter had long gone

The ground was mud, but I was a boy then
and I still remember how it was all red
It was the cave, it was the fire, to me I was warm
in this bright, in this daylight
The ground was mud, but I was a boy then
I tried to remember how it was all red
It was the same ember, my mother she was always warm
it’s all in the daylight
