lyrics

The writer sits and writes his wrongs
Of stately ballets and maelstroms
Sentencing the sentence on his tongue

Lonely but not alone,
Converging is the crowded room
The head that spins sings the world of songs

Goodbye to all
Be safe and be well
Take what's there and take good care
What's for me to tell?
Couldn't pull the weight
Didn't have the strength
Couldn't find the thrill
Didn't have the will

The sarcastic piece of machinery laughs last
Types today the world away in weighty paragraphs

The soldier's mind works overtime,
Won't settle down on down the line
Bombs abound his world is burning fast.

Goodbye to all
Be safe and be well
Take what's there and take good care
What's for me to tell?
Couldn't pull the weight
Didn't have the strength
Couldn't find the thrill
Didn't have the will
