lyrics

Writing on a shard of tile.
Fighting a losing battle
while four children run amok.
History is on your side
if you’ve already messed up.
And now is as good a time as any
to remember the many
whom so few of us want to touch.
And if you’re proud, you’d better watch

Cause you’re standing on their ground,
we’re standing on their ground.
And we will always be around.

Watching “Touched by an Angel.”
Touching a live cable,
heating a frozen bagel.
Your grown sons will stick around
just as long as they are able.
And now is a decent time to pause
to remember the shine-less stars
who never made it to the books.
And if you’re lost you’d better look

Because you’re standing on their ground,
we’re standing on their ground.
And we will always be around.
