Deep

Leaflets on the breeze
Slogans fill the air
You shook my still-life style
I never thought that I could care
You took me by the hand
With missionary zeal

When I think I’ve had enough
That’s when you begin
Leafing through
your catalog of sin

Half a mind to stop
I’ve got half a mind to run
Half awake
I have to think
I missed the starting gun
Lead me down the path
With secrets to reveal

When I think I’ve seen it all
When I sit content
You twist me
Turn me
Leave me tired and spent

When you cross the line
deep in my heart
When the rulebooks
have been torn apart
When your revolution’s
at my door
So much deeper than before

Paper houses burn
Cardboard walls collapse
The mysteries of life
Have just been dumped into our laps
Teach me to forget
Teach me how to feel

When I feel it’s all too much
I’ve got no more to give
But I know you could teach the dead to live

When you cross the line
deep in my heart
When the rulebooks
have been torn apart
When your revolution’s
at my door
So much deeper than before
