Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave, don't leave me
Walk around and choose your own ground

Long you live and high you fly
Smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
All you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one

For long you'll live, and high you'll fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave

    My InterpretationA moral tale of how one must keep moving and working to survive. But working too hard to get to the top rushes you to an early grave, so you must always remember to ride with the tide not on it.

    Similar themes are shown throughout the album, including in Time and Money in particular. A warning to balance work and life or risk losing both.

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song!
    Taoism at it's finest.
