    You own this


Loved his girl more than anything
Got him in some trouble when
He shipped off to school (he shipped off to school)
Writing got harder and fighting got louder
Happiness is like a whiff of a flower

Snow fell, opinions changed
Caught her off guard took her breath away
She said let’s try this one more time

One more beats no more which is what I’ve got
Green turns to gold turns to gray turns to dust

If all we have to show
For all this hard work
Is a bunch of electrons and binary bits
Then what are we really useful for?
Take control of your machine

Trust me
This life is only temporary


from Live at Lums Pond, released September 6, 2011
Natrin version. the Johnston lyrics make more sense.
