The cost is high
The cost is high
I started out to follow you
And claimed I’d do the things you do

To love a foe and give like that
Would end my life in seconds flat
And if my life is gone you see
How can I speak incessantly?

I altered my trajectory
And rest in mediocrity
So give me tea and swivel chair
I’ll lecture almost anywhere

I’ll talk without I’ll talk within
But spike will never touch my skin
I know so much I’ll make it clear
I’ll read the words but never hear

Explaining all the things I do
My platitudes are almost true
I’ll never mention once my shame
I’ll make my words sound just the same

As yours when you said we should die
Of course that price was way too high.
