When your life is piling up around you.
And your time is burning up before you.
And your mind is moving on with out you.
And your rhymes are no longer about you.

Just unwind.
With your kind.
Take it all.
I don't mind.
Let the worms take their turns.
Tow the line until it burns.

When you try to make friend you're lover.
And you find you've made your job your wife.
You might feel like going undercover.
Just to find the time to be yourself.

When you cat simply won't stop barking.
And you find it hard to pay the rent.
And you grow a frequent need for singing
just to drown the noise inside your head.

Tow the line until it burns.
Tow the line until it turns.
Pound the stake until it breaks.
Then rest your arms on the day
that you made.


from Honey, Are You Ready For The Ballet?, released January 1, 2002
