8 Stops 7 - Question Everything lyrics


Ever since I was a child you always said that I should understand the rules
You take some and give less
Sit high above the rest...don't you
As I ask a simple question
Cuts me off with his reply
He's been practicing for decades
Now he thinks I have the time
He flows in and out of riddles
Looking me straight in the eye
But it seems like something's missing from the days when he was more my size

Chorus:
Ten years older and I've finally found my pride
This old man comes rolling home to die
Old feelings make it hard to decide just what it means to me

Everything exists 'tween black and white
You can twist and distort the most blatant of lies
Or just offer up solutions practiced only in your mind
I lost half my life to wisdom
So forgive me if I come off sounding bitter
If my words push you away
If I seem surprised to see you lying here in front of me
Just consider what you're asking and give me a little time
I'm still having trouble breathing 'cause up to now I've never seen you cry

Chorus

No son of mine
Should I be sleeping
No son of mine
As if you never understood that I don't need your help
Don't have to save me from myself
Or take me out to prove that I should live my life like you
As I ask a simple question
Cuts me off with his reply
He's been practicing for decades
But I am listening this time
He flows in and out of riddles
Stories change without the wine
But at least he seems much clearer on how it feels to be my size

Chorus

Ten years older and I've finally found my pride
This old man comes rolling home to die
Old feelings make it harder to see just what he means to me
Just what he means to me
Just what he means to me
Just what he means to me
