You know as well as I
The pieces in my jig-saw
Were never made to fit
I waste my time
Pretending I can do it
And you know as well as I
Black is black
And white is white
Hell is somewhere in-between
But never far from sight
Children will forever be
The keepers of the truth
The keys are hidden safely
With their nightmares
You know as well as I
The birds will leave in winter
We'll see them in the spring
They don't do much complaining
In the meantime
And you know as well as I
One way's up
And one way's down
Somewhere in the middle
Is where we will all be found
Genius of innocence
Will never be denied
The call of the emotions
Is deafening
You know as well as I
The journey to full happiness
Is uphill all the way
Our ladders reach the snakes
And so we weaken
And you know as well as I
Right is right
And that is that
Nothing can defeat it
While our souls remain intact
People of perfection
Might be living here quite soon
They won't be needing love
And deep emotion
