It's hard to imagine, and hard to perceive
To find an expression for what it all means
Panic and struggle, death and decay
It's coming together in relative ways
This electric guitar hanging to my knees
Got a couple of verses, I can barely breathe
But it's all right, it's o.k.
It's coming together in relative ways

It's o.k., I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

And it's started to happen, it's started to change
With the movement upon us, hope we make it o.k.
If it takes a life or a couple of days
It's coming together in relative ways
An electric guitar hangs to my knees
Got a couple of verses, I can barely breathe
It's all right, it's o.k.
It's coming together in relative ways

It's o.k., I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

    General Commentthis song has multiple, wonderful, personal meanings. Texas bands are in fact rocking at the moment - check on Lift to Experience and Explotions in the Sky if you don't already know them
