Lyrics

Margaret

 

This stuff is so easy, isn’t it, Margaret?

But you might just disappear

Like you were never even here.

And they might not let you dream.

Like a headline printed in a magazine,

You read just like they wanted you to read.

 

And I had a lover like them, too.

So innocently cruel.

They climb inside of you,

And they never set you free.

And you’re not a lot like me,

Or I’m not a lot like you,

But either way it’s true.

 

Listen...outside

Hear them calling your name?

Patience...it’s alright

We’re so glad that you came.

Stand up, deep breath,

You’ll be wonderful

The curtain is open...

 

They got together on Christmas didn’t they, Margaret?

Like I can still recall.

All the kid voices down the hall,

And the clatter of the toys.

It was easier for boys

To shut out all the noise,

We’re not supposed to show anything at all.

 

And our fathers long before us knew

The bitterness of youth

And how to make it through

When everyone was gone.

Without our weapons drawn,

When we can’t stand up strong,

We smile and play along.

 

Listen...outside

Hear them calling your name?

Patience...it’s alright

We’re so glad that you came.

Stand up, deep breath,

You’ll be wonderful

The curtain is open...

Soldier...dreamer

Did you mean to be free?

Waiting...hoping

That the world would see.

Head up, calm down,

You’ll be wonderful

The curtain is open.
