This guy pushes right past me
Dragging his kid arms-length behind
Repeating “Listen to me son - we’re gonna be just fine”
They said I’d know when I was older
They said it would be abundantly clear
And if this is the secret
You can keep it
I keep hearing “we”
But they never asked me
Maybe its desire for displacement I’ve known
Or the storied promise that keeps me coming home
I’ll keep circling with sinners to forget about the winners
They say you’ll know it when you see it
