lyrics

I know you want the truth
and I know you wanna win,
but don’t try to build a roof
until you’ve put the basement in.

You want to be an extraordinary man
at the age of sixteen,
but you need an ordinary life
to make your ego lean.

On thing at a time, my friend,
just one thing at a time.
You don’t have to do everything
just because you’re in your prime.
But when it’s time to sand,
by all means sand.
If something’s meant to wear you down,
just take it as a lesson and
the texture of the wall
shows through fifty coats of paint and all.
It’ll be there fifty years on.

The friction’s really calling you to move on.
The friction’s really calling you to move on.
So move on.
No need to quit, just keep moving on
and sand and sand and sand
and sand and sand and sand
and sand and sand and sand
and sand and sand and sand
and sand and sand and sand
and sand and sand and sand.
