UMPHREY'S MCGEE MANTIS LYRICS

We believe there's something here
worth fighting for
Uniforms and all the rest
they'll try some more

I'd probably be wrong if I was right....

The breeze it seems
from all consideration
turmoil stands like old
rubber bands unbreaking

Anything worth mentioning
need not be true
by you
we all know...

I've seen much bigger men than me
your will be done I'm not the only one
this task it seems a backwards path
when things are said in context
big enough to wrap in concept
the things we'd say are'nt easy to replace
be brief if you're unsure
that's much braver than before
so what's your point?
Who's the next you will annoint?
the next you nowhere to transcend to
if we've got no way to end you

I hate to say it
you're no replacement
Excuse you cannot buy
it seems so aimless
just short and painless
the truth you cannot hide
the trouble measures
there's something better
there's one more word to try

I'm never good
with lies

Had you thought about it,
Could you live without it?
'Cause it's all about you
it's so elaborate
but you never had it
and you cannot grab it
if you try
