I thought I saw something moving,
I guess it was a trick of the light.
I thought I saw a young man in a hurry,
Who knew he was just wasting time.

When you were down on bended knee,
I tried to find my two feet.
When you were down on bended knee,
I tried.

When you’re gone, they’ll rush to the table,
Speeding through the traffic lights.
The trail you walked was stomped out,
Harsh words, hiding envy.
But I always knew, the silent side of you,
Who hated, genuinely hated, the person you’d become.

And I’ve been wondering, is it true?
You get five years, then the rust sets in.
From the Bay State, to the mystic coast, now
New England, and the twisted road.
The example you set will always stand,
When the rusts fades, and the noise gives.
Friends of friends, who knew the truth,
Lacked the courage to stand by you, but I swear…
Their hold will slip in due time, their hold will slip in due time.

When you’re gone, they’ll rush to the table,
Speeding through the traffic lights.
The trail you walked was stomped out,
Harsh words, hiding envy.
But I always knew, the silent side of you,
Who hated, genuinely hated, the person you’d become,

Is indistinguishable, from the very worst among us.
Are you the very worst among us?

And I swear, their hold will slip in due time.
Their hold will slip in due time.
Their hold will slip in due time,
Their hold will slip in due time.

I thought I saw something, I thought I saw something moving,
It was a trick of the light.
