Stumbling Stone




He who's alive is alone

And as sure as he'll die let it be known

The surest of stumbling stones

Are those we've rolled miles on our own

The best way anywhere's a straight line

Eyes fixed forward affords you no time

To fall into snares they'll design


Today I opened my eyes to the sunrise

And I told myself well this one will surely be my last


Guarantee I'm gonna live it like I'm alive

Gonna live it like I'm alive

So when dusk falls and I do survive

I can sleep


I dreamed of a freeway last night

Cardboard trees and stale yellow lights

But surely the strangest of sights

People in lines ten thousand wide

All with their hands on their eyes


I stood there for a while and I watched them

And I saw myself in every face that passed me by


Guarantee I'm gonna live it like I'm alive

Gonna live it like I'm alive

So when dusk falls and I do survive

I can sleep


They were all lonely people

They were never alone

Lined up like dinosaurs

Doomed to be bones

And the first was the last one

In fancier clothes
