Lose the plastic diamond ring from the parade-
But if you lose me in your grips I must be saved,
Lose the harmonies we learned, lose the taste of bread you earned,
Lose your rhythm, lose your lines, lose your sense of passing time,

Then lose yourself instead till you remember to forget.
Lose your passion and your hope, lose the knotting in your rope,
Lose, the children that you bore, lose the battle, lose the war,

You don't have to be a master or a slave-
But if you lose me down the line I must be saved,
And if you find your conscience plagued by some misplaced or righteous rage

Lose the chance to find another who'd behave,
For if you lose me in your net I must be saved
Lose the vows we never spoke, lose the punch-line to the joke,
Lose the kettle on the pot, you can lose the best you've got
