Mission bell is ringin’ for you
No one ’round and nothin’ to do
Memory will fly and will fall
It’s something you used to write on the wall


Chorus:
Wrong, so wrong, we’re wrong
People pass and walk a road that’s
Long, so long, it’s long
See you when the sun is high



Wind is wild and blowin’ too fast
The first in line will soon be the last
And when you go, somebody will cite
Ground control, better cancel this flight


Chorus repeat


Maybe someday you’ll finally reveal
Something you stole, or something you’ll steal
Now everyone is pulling their load
And do they grow, or do they explode


Chorus repeat x2
