It’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
we’re alive for the first time.
It’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
we’re alive for the last time.
It’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
to live before you die.
It’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
that our lives are such a short time.
It’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
when it takes such a long time.

Well some guy comes in looking a bit like everyone I ever seen. He moves just like crisco disco, breath one hundred percent listerine. He says, looking at something else but directing everything to me, “every time someone gets on their knees and prays well it makes my telephone ring and I’ll be damned.” He said,”you were right, no one’s running this whole thing.” He had a theory too, he said that “god takes care of himself and you of you.”

All them eager actors gladly taking credit for the lines created by the people tucked away from—sight—is just a window from the room we’re bound to. If you find a way out, oh, would you just let me know how would you just let me know how
