"You'll wake up wrapped in winter if you sleep through summer."
Hey, thanks for the tip, but I doubt that you've got it covered
We'll use spring and fall as buffers while our skin gets tougher
And you? You can cling like clichés to one another
We're taught to take precautions
We take more than our share
The cautious steps we're taking can't take us anywhere
We sprang forward and fell back, and we heard our clocks ask:
"Hey, you! If time's a constant, why am I constantly under attack?"
So, we held its hands to help it, but our hearts were selfish
Sometimes the best intentions end up intense without means to quell it
We've poisoned our blood streams and blackened our lungs. We've enabled the edifice that it's how we belong
We may suffer together, but we all die alone
