lyrics

Can’t ask the grocery man
Can’t ask the cops
Can’t ask your granddad 
He’s out back fixing clocks
 
Tried to ask the bus driver 
He said stay behind the line
Can’t ask anybody with a watch
About running out of time
 
All I wanna know
What I’m really trying to say
How we ever gonna learn
To live any other way
 
And I could win a Nobel prize
If I had the fix 
But all I got are these songs 
And a few good magic tricks
 
Can’t ask the newspaper
But I can ask the books
History’s gonna frown on me
For caring so much about my looks
 
Cause I know I should
Put my body on the line
Make no mistake they’ll knock you down
And kick you as you rise
 
No road is easy 
But where’s the road
I can’t even find my feet
Let alone where I’m going
 
I’m supposed to tear down
These walls made of bricks
But all I got are these songs 
And a few good magic tricks
 
Can’t ask the bartender 
She’s making drinks
Can’t ask my dog 
I have no idea what he thinks
 
Can’t ask the president 
This much I know
What’s it mean to hold on
What’s it look like to let go
 
Maybe I should run for something
Get into politics 
But all I got are these songs 
And a few good magic tricks
