I went and saw a band last night that I have seen about a dozen times since 1995. However this time, twenty years had gone by since I first heard this song live. They just never play it, until last night. Of course it resonated with me again and I woke up and played it about ten times already. I could elaborate about what it means to me, but when it comes down to it, some things just never get old, even though you get older. These are the lyrics which I can’t take credit for.
As you’re in this, search for something to hate
I can feel you rally around someone with your peers
But can you stand alone?
Can you take the long way home?
‘Cause I stood in the circle a hundred times before
And I feel safer in the eye of the storm
You can throw your stones
I’ll only bleed for you for one day
They all answer to the hearsay
but they will only care for one day
It’s so small, it’s so small
And I would love to show you all
I can see you in the middle of a doubt
You told them we had a falling out
Sick your dogs on me as you take the easy way out
So I will be a freak show when the circus comes to town
And I will rain on your parade without a sound
Then we will draw a crowd that’s only breaking down for one day
I graduate this class with honor
And I will never fail drama
