buy the ticket, take the ride you never know what you might find you only fail if you never try when the car pulls up, you step inside and leave what you believe behind look forward through the vagaries of time those knots that you have died inside your mind must, like a ball of yarn, start to unwind follow the eyes in the stormy skies make no mistake or alibis you can't fool he who sees everything watch the moon and feel the tide don't pray to whom you idolize your god cannot help you with anything any idiot can see through all your lies so what's the use, embrace what you defy don't pin it all on me to clarify what you refuse to think through in your mind your ego will erode and become footprints in the snow you'll cling to who you are but you'll never make it very far when you're on your own in stormy weather and you wanna make it out together then you gotta face this great endeavor without fear or you'll be drownin' forever inside your ego will erode and become footprints in the snow you'll cling to who you are but you'll never make it very far

take a look, my friend, you'll see your sordid ideology is violently rippin' at the seams what goes on behind your nose, like the sand that shifts beneath your toes is meltin' away like ice cream how long can you cling to the thought that you were owed and you should ought to be at the top of the heap? you can call it anything you please, but wrappin' it up in ribbons and beads don't make any difference to me i know you go any which way the wind blows the wind's blowin' to the right side of the moat will you undo everything that you've been through? or follow the goat any which way he may roam he's gonna make a mess of everything still you're gonna kiss his ring he's gonna make a mess of everything still you're gonna kneel before your king so dearly you do cling to these things which would have you believe you're right out of sight, out of mind what you don't see you don't believe i know you go any which way the wind blows the wind's blowin' to the right side of the moat will you undo everything that you've been through? or follow the goat any which way he may roam

lay me down on a filthy bed, tell me it's all in my head wash my hands with gasoline, light a match and flee the scene pour the wine with arsenic, tell me it's the real shit serve that soup with mercury, smile and say it's good for me do it once, do it again, tell me you're my real friend rewrite the rules, rig the game, tell me i'm the one to blame put it in, pull it out, smile while i scream and shout let it go while i bleed, smile and say it's good for me in the dark, sing to me with your haunting melody like a broken record on repeat, repetitive and incomplete hold it too close and it'll choke into a heap of ash and smoke or watch it die in your hands, don't try too hard to understand they got mary, soon they'll be comin' to get me on a cold night, in the moonlight, they're callin' my name eyes closed, i know how all of this shit is bound to go they're gonna put us all in chains don't wear your heart on your sleeve don't ever share what you believe don't ever dare to disagree don't wear your heart on your sleeve
