You can try with every ounce of strength,
But you can't hold up time.
You can study for an unending length,
But you won't remember every line.
Everybody's got their human failings,
For some it's like a sea.
I was out there screaming and flailing --
You were my recovery.

Do you feel any different than the way you did?
People don't act like the way they did.
Music doesn't sound like the way it did.
Wish the world functioned like the way it did again.

Hold on to your dying day
And it still will find an escape.
You can try to lock it all away,
But it will just evaporate.
In the past, they made the same mistake:
Struck east when the north was for take.
A temporal kind of dismay
And the years just melt away.

He didn't think that we'd do it.
She didn't think that we'd make it.
Now that we've been through it...

Creepy people commiserate
And congregate in the slime.
Above the fray we elevate;
Their hands can't touch the divine.
Some say it's a catastrophe
That this is the mess we're in.
I say, "As long as you're here with me,
Who gives a fuck about any of them?"

He didn't think that we'd do it.
She didn't think that we'd make it.
Now that we've been through it,
Let's throw it in their faces.

Do you still feel the way that you did --
Like how we felt back when we were kids?
Like the days we lived just to live?
Holding on for all it had to give?
