Let me ask you.
Have you ever held a position in an argument past the point of comfort?
Have you ever defended a way of life you were on the verge of exhausting?
Have you ever given service to a creed you no longer utterly believed?
Have you ever told a girl that you loved her and felt the faint nausea of eroding conviction?
That's an interesting moment.
Guess you gotta be the way you are.
Guess you gotta see things your own way.
If everyone laughs when the joke's on you.
Don't take it so hard.
You can look on the light side.
Well a man was hit by a train.
And his body was startin to drain.
The doc said the man's half dead
I say he's half alive.
It's all in the way you look at it.
