I feel good but I'm scared that it's lasted too long Yeah I might have to turn this thing over The fire was warm but it's growing too strong And I'm tempted to snuff it forever I'm having a tough time 'cause I'm not having hard times Going to get in a mess for protection I'm going to throw this whole game I'll get tainted and stained So the devil won't want me in his collection Lately things have gone well and it's getting me down I'm nervous I'm forced to take action We may not all agree if the devil's around But I'm willing to take this precaution, I'm having a tough time . . . My bills are all paid and I sleep fine at night Everything's clean and it doesn't seem right Somebody break in and steal all my stuff Everything's perfect and I've had enough, I'm having a tough time . . .

I don't want to feel sad But every time I feel sad I feel closer later When I've returned I'm in your favor But if it lasts too long It feels like you were always gone I feel further than ever And redirect your offer to recover In these transitions Of mood It seems I'm most receptive to you When I change I approve I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . . But I don't want to meet you only in transition I don't want to feel pain But every time I feel pain I feel comforted and hopeful When physically returned to normal But if the suffering stays And fills every unoccupied space I feel hurt and deserted And shield attempts to resuscitate revival In these transitions Through pain It's the easiest connection to maintain When I hurt You remain I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . . But I don't want to meet you only in transition It's counter intuitive when I'm impaired But I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . . And I don't want to meet you only in transition

It's hard for me to hurt you when I'm singing Especially if you decide to sing along We might never agree on the words to go with a peaceful chorus and verse But I'd be more composed right now with a song It's hard for me to hurt you when I'm singing It's hard for you to hurt me when I'm singing Especially if you decide to sing along We might never agree on the words to go with a peaceful chorus and verse But I'd be more composed right now with a song It's hard for you to hurt me when I'm singing It's hard for you to hurt me when you're singing Especially if I decide to sing along We might never agree on the words to go with a peaceful chorus and verse But you'd be more composed right now with a song It's hard for you to hurt me when you're singing It's hard for me to hurt you when you're singing Especially if I decide to sing along We might never agree on the words to go with a peaceful chorus and verse But you'd be more composed right now with a song It's hard for me to hurt you when you're singing

Because we all are students, wherever we may be The world shall be one classroom, forever proud and free No truant shall defeat us, no failure keep us down All teachers then shall greet us, the whole wide world around My teachers are all others, forever washing feet Continuing examples, the merciful and meek My teacher's fears are my fears, with grief and shame weighed down My teacher's tears are my tears, the whole wide world around Let every voice be thunder, let every heart be strong Until all truants join us, our work will not be done Let every name be spoken, the lost sheep shall be found Let slavery's chains be broken, the whole wide world around Because we all are teachers, wherever we may be The world shall be one classroom, forever proud and free No truant shall defeat us, no failure keep us down All students then shall greet us, the whole wide world around

Don't look now there's a personal assistant On her way to an industrial park Tell me young lady your words per minute Right pinky down to the question mark 10 words, 20 words, 30 words per minute? 40 words, 50 words, 60 words per minute? 10 words, 20 words, 30 words per minute? 40 words, 50 words, 60 words per minute? One, two, three, yes A, S, D, F Right ring finger to the dot, dot, dot
