Lyrics.

I had a beer
It was not a very nice beer
But a beer is still a beer
Crowds - walking, waiting, stepping out

I used to think I knew best - better even
I wore a T-shirt with a beaver and a quiff
And if I never really did those things
Did I ever exist?

Feel I'm changing, I'm transforming
I'm standing in a doorway leaning and threatening
Standing in a door blocking you
Stopping you from leaving

Is growing up just growing old?
Is staying here just rolling over?
I'm getting up and going out

You're not changing
You're just swallowing time
You're not raising hell
You're toeing the line

(Can you help me?)
I can help you figure it out
You're not changing
Just remembering how it used to be

Softly, softly
A change is coming over me

In living a lie
You're letting in a little poison
When you let go a piece of your soul
You're letting go a piece of your whole

See your reflection in a broken glass
You're hard and round like a cue-ball
Stone-man
So white and so small
