Had to find some higher ground,
Had some fear to get around
You can't say what you don't know,
Later on won't work no more

Last time through I hid my tracks
So well, I could not get back
Yeah my way was hard to find,
Can't sell yourself a piece of mind

Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me my dear
It took a world of trouble,
Took a world of tears
It took a long time to get back here

Tried so hard to stand alone,
Struggled to see past my nose
Always had more dogs than bones,
I could never wear those clothes

It's a dark victory,
You won and you also lost
Told us you were satisfied,
But it never came across

Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me my dear
It took a world of trouble,
Took a world of tears
It took a long time to get back here

Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me my dear
It took a world of trouble,
Took a world of tears
It took a long time to get back here

Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me my dear
It took a world of trouble,
Took a world of tears
It took a long time to get back here
