Track Name: It's Really Coming Down
any boy could be the bard of his street
when he's got no power, got no heat
he can't feel his fingers or his feet
he's turning time into a song

any man can question his career
when the ghost whispers in his ear
and the angels scream "get out of here.
he's turning time into a song"

that i can't sing
so i'll try and do the free-range thing
and tell you honestly of my false modesty

if you find me so sincerely glib
i assure you if my bones did break
i'd show you a yellow teflon happy face
and curl up in my margerine bed

i'm still mulling over what you said:
"if you build to high, then they won't come,
if you shoot too much, then they won't run"
Now it's really coming down...

...that I can't sing
so i'll sit and ponder all the things
that i chose to take,
the fact that I didn't break.
