1.
We were sophomores who had shaken off 20-something credits while taking on water in our steadily sinking academic lives A whole year spent weaning off weekends in our hometown left us isolated and alone in our rooms You were a bull, militant, or adamant to change I was one too, in a fashion with differences that seem to matter little now When autumn had firmed into hard and steady ground I finally grew tired of feeling sorry for myself and shed what little was left for dead And started brand new with a heart that could finally let go and begin to heal

Sally the ford if there's no chance of a last push to save us now And even though I know, they'll put your body up to break on the millstone to abandon hope This is what you get for thinking you can walk on water you are not bigger than your words or yourself But I know you're already sure so the finest words can never change that so you'll resign your failure to my complete lack of faith And come down! I know! I know! You can't make them see what you see You'll force your hand (even if it betrays your body to abandon hope) This is what you get for thinking you can walk on water this is what you get for holding your head up so high Do you wish you had never met such teeth so sharp? Draw out! The oldest words will never become the truth no matter how much you want them to be
