When I'm fine
I'm feeling really fine
The sky is bright, my feet are light, the world is mine
And when I'm mad
It's a rolling boil mad
My eyes are red, out of my head, my words are daggers

I often wonder where I got these ups and downs
And then I visit home and no one notices at all
I know that I'm the owner of my actions, they're all mine
But it seems like there's an echo bouncing back and forth through time

While we grew
We thought we were new
We felt no pain, the fruited plain, it lay wide open
Now we're old
Lazy, rich and old
We will fight, but not for right, now just for money

I often wonder just what happened to that dream
But when I start to talk of it, no one wants to listen
The latest war, another fight, a dying empire's lies
And just another echo bouncing back and forth through time

The king is dead long, live the king
Another kind of tyrant will pick up and wear his ring
It doesn't matter how unique we really think we are
We're just another echo of a distant dying star

Can't be right
Scream into the night
We choose our path our race's fate's not predetermined
These little plays
These repetitious scripts
We play the part, we call it art, our role is frozen
