With everything I’ve come to know
It’s bound to change, it's time to grow
To grow, to grow
I’m not afraid of the shadows and dark
I bend like a plant in the window sill
For the sun, for the sun

Lately it's raining all of the time
Bothers me a little but I’m mostly fine
I’m fine, fine
Some have it better while some have it worse
For better or worse I’m not wasting my time
My time, my time

I can’t see
If I close my eyes
I can’t learn
If I don’t ask why

The structures I’m told that make the world turn
Need to change or finally burn
Burn, burn
Let the powers that be, be the powers that went
Bite the hand that feeds or get tied up like a dog.
No no not me, no no not me.
