Like you said when we crawled down from the trees
We're in transition
I don't want to remain on the edge
We must embrace the new conditions

I'm all right, I'm all right
Though it's a contradiction
It's enough but less than I imagined

I'll get used to this
A one-roomed apartment
If I fall behind on the rent
I'll have to borrow from a close friend

I'm all right, I'm all right
Though it's a contradiction
It's enough but less than I imagined

You always promise more than you can deliver
Independence ain't dependence

When you said it gets so cold that we could freeze
I reconsidered
I did all I could to be saved
It looks like I made the wrong decision
