Living amongst the green as green can be
A house upon the plains and sounds so sweet
Your grandpa's ghost, a'creaking attic floors
Oldies from the workshop, dishes from the kitchen
Not into the wild, but into the city to be tempted

Living amongst the green is mighty fine
Young enough to know we'll never die
Here we like to watch the concrete creak
Here we spit the wind, yes here we play for keeps

Well I met a man whose face was flanked by gray
He had fault lines where his frowns too often lay
He said, "Son, you've got to stop this nonsense
Earn those checks and live for weekends
We are on the side of angels, and you
You're not complete"

Well that's when I learned never to confuse
Wrinkles with wisdom, a lesson new
But it's always something else
Always something else
Well it's always something else

I hope I go to heaven when I die
But I have got indulgences to bribe
Tell me if that's the road you wish to take
Tell me and I will gladly help you pay your way

Living amongst the green as green can be
If I don't try now, I'll never be at peace

Whatever ever happens in the next five minutes
I will still be here in six
Whatever ever happens in the next five minutes
I will still be here in six
Whatever ever happens in the next five minutes
I will still be here in six
Whatever ever happens in the next five minutes
I will still be here
