Metaphors

wisdom don’t come easy

sometimes you learn the hard way

it seems like life hands out struggles freely

while taking the things we love away

and speaking your mind is simple

but you only use, metaphors

and everything to you is a symbol

there’s always something deeper something more

and ohhh

and so you said, you can’t step in the same river twice

all things will change, and that change requires sacrifice

you’d better take the hand you’ve been dealt

before it’s too late, and you’ve got nothing else

so I’ll say it straight, to you now

you wise up soon, or I’m walking out

you’re always two steps ahead of the crowd

that band you liked is too mainstream for you now

you dream up ways to invent your own sound

and use metaphors just to seem more profound

and oooh

and so you said, you can’t step in the same river twice

all things will change, and that change requires sacrifice

you’d better take the hand you’ve been dealt

before it’s too late, and you’ve got nothing else

so I’ll say it straight, to you now

you wise up soon, or I’m walking out

you wise up soon, or I’m walking out
