lyrics

Son, I am your two-feet-on-the-ground one;
think of me when you think you are bold.
Son, I do believe that one must answer
when one is called to do what one is told.
And Alexander was at worst insane, at best confused -
a half a brain and a pair of shoes! -
and the harder you run the faster you slow;
the more you hide the more you show;
and the less you earn the more you owe.

I am just your temporary lover;
you are here to challenge my esteem.
And I am here to show you there's no other;
all things be exactly as they need.
And Alexander was at worst correct, at best confused -
a young man's verve and a case of blues -
and the farther you run the farther you get
from what you know and who you've met;
what you're not now you will be yet.

But I am not your two-feet-on-the-ground one;
I am just one point to get across.
And he who makes excuses for the found ones
is he who ties the nooses for the lost.
And Alexander was at worst naive, at best a sage -
a piece of mind for a war to wage -
and the farther I run the faster I go;
the more I meet the more I know;
and the less I earn the less I owe.
