I wrote about
The speed of sound,
On the day you made it to the End.

You Lived through prison,
You killed and were Forgiven,
But I'm Grateful to have Known you as my Friend.
Your life left me so confused,
You said "I'm a lot like you."
Oh so it goes,
Can’t tell the wind which way to blow.
Oh so it goes,
Rotterdam on fire.
Oh so it goes,
You’re always sort of all alone.
Oh so it goes,
Some Other Place on fire.

Little Sister used to ride her bicycle to work
Smuggling machine guns underneath her skirt.
You used to hide a knife inside a bible,
Cyanide in an apple, in case you need to start again.
In 45' at Nuremberg, horrific words and justice served,
But you testified to set your jailor free.
I asked you why, you said "he was a decent guy,
And I'm sure he would have done the same for me."

Your life left me so confused,
You said "I'm a lot like you."

Oh so it goes,
Can’t tell the wind which way to blow.
Oh so it goes,
Rotterdam on fire.
Oh so it goes,
You’re always sort of all alone.
Oh so it goes,
Some Other Place on fire.

You can't make peace without an enemy.
You can't be forgiven without sin.
We're all looking for a love that's gonna set us free,
But first you must forgive the man you've been.

Oh so it goes,
Can’t tell the wind which way to blow.
Oh so it goes,
Rotterdam on fire.
Oh so it goes,
You’re always sort of all alone.
Oh so it goes,
Some Other Place on fire.
Oh so it goes,
Can’t tell the wind which way to blow.
Oh so it goes,
Rotterdam on fire.
Oh so it goes,
You’re always sort of all alone.
Oh so it goes,
Another place on fire.
