the world outside

from by Chuck Zak & the Oxford Boys



the world outside is changing
and I don't want to be left behind when it does
for a second time

and all we have to guard against
is redundancy of experience
and then we should be fine

the world outside is colder now
and it won't coddle innocence if it don't
learn some common sense

the urge to fight, the urge to join
are two different sides of the same coin
still sitting on this fence

and I would like to take you far away from
all we ever see and I'll be kind
if the world will let me be

maybe not, maybe so
but they say tomorrow never knows
I think we should go
