lyrics

There’s a young man, a wise man
sittin’ at the table of my heart
they are arguing discussing fables
There’s a young man and a wise man
sittin’ at the table of my heart

There’s a young man and a wise man
A giving and a selfish man
There’s a lost man and there’s a strong man
There’s a man who will always be talking
And there’s a man who will always be walking

There’s a guilty man a hanged man, a desperate man
There’s a righteous man trying to make a living and
There’s an avaricious man taking from the giving
And there’s an honest man who will be there at your hearing

There’s a man going straight getting caught in the narrow
There’s a man getting cabin fever dreaming of tomorrow
There’s a man who takes a torch and burns all of his bridges
Then finds himself alone swimming back to his village.

There’s a young man, a wise man
sittin’ at the table of my heart
they are arguing discussing fables
There’s a young man and a wise man
sittin’ at the table of my heart


There’s a sick man who’s constantly searching for the cure
To the madness in his mind and the chaos out the door
With the lights out he’s scraping the bottom of the bucket
With his dreams as a shovel panning for an elusive nugget

There’s a highly strung man always knocking at my door
Beating the windows of my soul like a biblical storm
In the darkness he’s constantly creeping up my walls
He’s the dog that never dies, howling underneath my floor

One step forwards and two steps back
This life is always one step forwards and two steps back

You think you know a friend
and then he stabs you in the back
You think you’re going straight
you’re on the wrong side of the track
This government got you so scared
you can’t talk back
When money is your god then the people on the rack

When riches plundered from the earth
buy dolphins stolen from the sea
Where riches from the earth
buy dolphins stolen from the sea
This silence is killing me

This life is always one step forwards and two steps back y’all
