lyrics

A poet's breath (A poet's breath)
Changes the day (Changes the day)
You wish you had (You wish you had)
Something to say (Something to say)

A poet's breath (When you're driving your car)
A poet's words (Assembled in herds)

When the clock's strike is relevant and the people want a show.
The facts are externalized, but the facts are so controlled.
The 'I's in the story tell a story I don't know.
In a hollow maturity, it's bullshit that he crows.

A poet's breath (Syncs up to yours)
Just to relate (Just to ignore)
Or amplify (All that's wrong with your mind)
'Cause it's OK (To run at the day)

I should have meaning in my life. My life should have a message.
A message for the more I open doors, the more I close 'em.
I do not wanna just sit down and wait for life to happen.
It happens that the more I write, the more I do.

When the clock's strike is relevant and the people want a show.
The facts are externalized, but the facts are so controlled.
The 'I's in the story tell a story I don't know.
In a hollow maturity, it's bullshit that he crows.

And the thinker's wit is lessened the more critically he speaks.
And his life is such a shame, he says, by saying not a peep.
So then what's most important must be under lock and key.
A teller tells a story and that's what he wants to be.
