We could sit by and watch history repeat itself ,
or feed off the fruits of the labor of someone else,
and time’s a reminder that there are things you just can’t avoid;
It tells me I’m older than I was the day before.
A man breaks his back holding signs to change how we live
as I sit inside and look out, as I’ve got nothing to give.
We could wait on the inside and fight for a sunny day,
or get our heels wet as we run the the pouring rain.
