Alive

 Maybe you talk too high, man.
 Maybe I talk too slow.
 But you've got to live a little bit faster
 'cause you've got a little less time to go.
 I ain't lost and I ain't searching.
 But then you know me very well.
 And I can't change the wind
 and make it blow the other way.
 I'm a fool and I can tell .
 That I'm alive and that's all.
 That I can get up just as fast as I fall.
 And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl.
 And in the end it doesn't matter at all.
 I don't know about the people
 that I read about in books.
 And the Kings and Queens around my room
 with their quiet dirty looks.
 I know I should be going somewhere,
 I just can't arrive .
 There's a reason for believing
 that I've never been alive, alive.
 I ain't lost and I ain't searching.
 But then you know me very well.
 And I can't change the world
 and make it go the other way.
 I'm a fool and I can tell.
 That I'm alive and that's all .
 That I can get up just as fast as I fall.
 And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl.
 And in the end it doesn't matter at all.
 I don't know about those people
 that I read about in books.
 And the Kings and Queens around my room
 with their quiet dirty looks.
 I know I should be going somewhere,
 I just can't arrive.
 There's a reason for believing
 that I've never been alive.
 I know I should be going somewhere
 I just can't arrive.
 There's a reason for believing
 that I've never been alive, alive, alive.
