From the recording It Don't Matter

Lyrics

It don’t matter if you’re wounded, or the angle of attack,
or if you’re up against the wall.
It don’t matter if the winter’s at your back,
can’t Spring until you Fall.

I know you’re walking on a tightrope,
and yeah, we sometimes fall.
Just debris there left among our footsteps,
as the world gets ever smaller.

But hold on, I’m not through drowning…
it’s deeper, the further you see. I see...

You might wonder at my meaning, and who can really say?
You may wander to a place…
where you dream, but dreams are left forgotten.
Just stand and spin in space

And hold on, I’m not through drowning,
it’s deeper, the further you see. I see…

When the gutter’s looking down on you,
and you’ve got nowhere to go,
and you’re wondering what step to take,
or who you gotta know.
Will you tell them what they want to hear,
or what you gotta say?
You can leave it all behind you…
but don’t throw it all away

So get a better mirror, leave a deeper footprint
Tell ‘em all to go to hell
There’s no god, no sacrificial angel
Just you and me and all the things we thought we knew so well

But hold on, I’m not through drowning,
it’s deeper, the further you see. I see…
