lyrics

See I was standing in line for the reckoning, had a secondhand grin on my face
saying "time will tell but I think it'd be swell for to walk away winning the race."
Biding my time for the stars to align, gotta get myself outta this place,
well I don't know what's over the horizon but I'm going at the conventional pace.

A shadow on the wall is all that I saw
but I know what I found by standing on the ground

Stuck in the mud just chewing on my cud bud, chomping at the bit to get free
I can't tell ya what I'll do when I do, but it don't much matter to me.
An angel of the Lord appeared in the sky, and this is what he said:
If yinz are just standing 'round waiting to die then you are already dead.

A shadow on the wall is all that I saw
but I know what I found by standing on the ground.
How do you know what you know? Did you see it on a T.V. show?
Did you search for it in the dark? Did you know it from the start?
