I will get there

And I will get there
I will get there
and it will all be the same as here
I'll be wearing the same clothes
and carrying this dirty hair

And I will get there
I will get there
and I will still know where I am
I will see the same reprise
and the same rivers dammed

And it will be just my luck
the record got stuck
the ages got looped
and all the Gods are in cahoots

Or I will get there
I will get there
and the silence will be a bore
though it was what I was waiting for
There is only one door
there is only one door

Or I will get there
I will get there
with my crown still attached
with a rod still on my back
with my eyes still showing black
with my goodbyes echoing back

And it will be just my luck
that the way got junked
that the fire was a fluke
and all the Gods are in cahoots
