one year later lyrics – get up kids

wandering the k-10
as anniversaries end,
pondering events that brought us here.

if anyone remember when
around the world and back again
was a dream not quite so clear?

overwhelms
over the hills and away
was not a mistake.

did that straight and narrow,
nailed self-righteous arrow
get to be so decadent?
could you trade your lessons
to have grown up in the process?
remarks never relent.

learned by your examples
and we learned by your mistakes.
argue our positions,
it’s a decision that we have to make.
it’s not a mistake

if we had known
what we know now…
one year later, we’d still be around.

got your full attention
over hours of speculation,
don’t you know who knows…? i know.
finally make decisions?
finally work it out?
finally let it go?

we’re not running backwards.
don’t you know,
that we love reunion shows.
this is not a swan song…
but it goes…

if we had known what we know now…
one year later, we’d still be around.
if we had known what we know now…
one year later, we’d still be around, around, around.
