    Lyrics

    there's an old man on a city bus
    holding a candy cane
    and it isn't even christmas
    he sees a note in the obituary
    that his last friend has died
    there's an infant clinging
    to his overweight mother in the cold
    as they go to shop for cigarettes
    and she spends her last dollar
    on a bottle of vodka for tonight

    and i guess it struck a nerve
    like i had to squint my eyes
    you can never get out
    of the line of sight
    like a barren winter day
    or a patch of unburned green
    like a tragic real dream
    i guess it struck a nerve

    every day i wander
    in negative disposition
    as i'm bombarded by superlatives
    realizing very well that i am not alone
    introverted
    i look to tomorrow for salvation
    but i'm thinking altruistcally
    and a wave of overwhelming doubt
    turns me to stone

    and i guess it struck a nerve
    sent a murmur through my heart
    we just haven't got time
    to crack the maze
    like a magic speeding clock
    or a cancer in our cells
    a collision in the dark
    i guess it struck a nerve

    i try to close my eyes
    but i can not ignore the stimuli
    if there's a purpose for us all
    it remains a secret to me
    don't ask me to justify my life

    cuz i guess it struck a nerve
    like i had to squint my eyes
    you can never get out
    of the line of sight
    like a magic speeding clock
    or a cancer in our cells
    a collision in the dark
    i guess it struck a nerve
