lyrics

Childman
That's what you am
Child

It has its up and downs
Leave a line on your face
When you smile
Or laugh or frown
It wasn't made for you
You must try, leave a line
In the place
Where you were to yourself true

You're the one who makes it impossible
You're the one
Puts up your own obstacle
You blind yourself, cut your losses and grieve
The death of what's alive
The letter not received

Childman
That's what you am
Child

You couldn't see
You could only look
The words you said came from the copybook
The words you bought and sold
Had them down cold
But what you wrote in your name
Cannot be played the same

You know you can't afford to be late
The price is higher the longer you wait
But if you try
You'll see twice as much
With your eyes open all the way
You'll turn a deeper touch
Cloud crowd
You can't even it out
Childman
You will stand up when
You know you can

You know you're not really so innocent
You can't say you always had good intent
And the powers of the bad
They did what they could
To make you do only the things
That felt good
