Do you remember the moment you finally did something about it?
When the kick of the drum lined up with the beat of your heart
Stuck in the corn maze with only a transistor radio
Making paths with the soundwaves and echoes in old Baba O, Oh, Oh!

And we heard you Pete, loud and clear on the last one
And we were pulling for you a thousand times a day
And it don't take much to sound like a sleeping prophet
When your misery sounds so much like ours so far away, so far away,
So far away

Do you remember the night you finally heard something about it
When the kick of the drum went off like artillery fire
And if you're wondering man, well yeah I would say that it got to us
The shrapnel flew right through the screen from the Comedy Hour, yeah, yeah!

And we heard you Keith, real loud and clear on the last one
I must have listened to you a thousand times a day
And for one short breath, it sounds like the world is ending
Exploding in space and beginning again so far away, so far away,
So far away

And we heard you Pete, loud and clear on the last one
And we were pulling for you a thousand times a day
And it don't take much to sound like a sleeping prophet
When your misery sounds so much like ours so far away, so far away,
So far away
