lyrics

When your struggle to prove yourself has ended
When you've made your name to all that's come before
When your stature has been duly elevated.
Will you dare to stand outside your massive doors?

Will you curse the man who stands outside your sidewalk
Will you doubt the girl who tells you it's the truth
Will you look away from eyes that try to love you
Will you blame a heart once tortured and abused

When they shake you up
And they rattle your cage
When they turn you over
Check your pockets for change
Will you grab for your virtue
Or will you jump at the chance
To do a little dance

When your face reflects an eon full of struggle
And looks back at you from sidewalk stands and more
When you see eyes full of strongly held convictions.
Will you know which one to send right out the door.

Will you fantasize of quiet and belonging
And relish that your fantasy is true
Will you share the sense of awe in your sweet victory
While you give an awkward victory saluteÉ

When they shake you up
And they rattle your cage
When they turn you over
Check your pockets for change
Will you grab for your virtue
Will you jump at the chance
To do a little dance.

And I knew you once when you were different
We were idealists on a fourth of July
We were staring at families and the fireworks
Now I'm staring down, and you're staring at the blind.
