Lyrics

Take a longer view and it's easy
To say, 'what did you expect?'
Pick another path to follow
And dictate what happens next

That'll never work, I wouldn't do that if I were you

Every night you'd raise up your glass
In relative good cheer
Only to relax and hold down
The gentle hand of fear

Take a shorter view and the reason
You had to shape my world like that
Never could quite follow the storyline
And script always fell flat

That'll never work, I wouldn't do that if I were you

Were you always thinking to yourself
'I've had it up to here'
And it that what finally pushed up
The mental hand of fear

Thank god that's over, I may re-think it every once in a while
I know you did the best you could and that's enough to make me smile

Every night you'd raise up your glass
In relative good cheer
Only to relax and hold down
The gentle hand of fear
