lyrics

The chiming of the west wind
The changing of the guard.
You spent a lot of worry
It's not the kind you want.
It's seems to me
There is something colliding
But it's nothing good
To spend all your time hiding.

If Dorothy had surrendered
She'd have wound up stuck in Oz.
Amidst the flying monkeys
And their sticky little paws.
So stand up straight;
You've got vertebrae, use 'em;
Anticipate!
You can pick and then choose 'em.

And yawning in the cracks of
An old forgetting place
The song of dandelions
And the changing of your face;
It seems to me
You've outgrown that sweater
It seems to me
You better try to forget it.

Cause I've heard a lot of stories;
Some of them were lies -
Some of them had owls inside -
Some were not so kind.
So it seems to me
Your circles are binding.
It seems to me
You've left everything crying.

Well you're a long coming
I almost turned my tail.
I was racing for a cheetah,
Not waiting on a snail.
So it seems to me
You've got something shiny;
It could be dull
Or it could be a diamond.

And there was something really winning
In the way you tied your shoe.
And when you're on an airplane
There's nothing much to do.
So think of me
Going in through the out door.
It seems to be
Your pocket's filled with
A lot more.
