How promising the start
Of the letter being read until the captain proclaimed
"Dying is my heart"
And then a hush befalls the crowd as the theater exclaimed
"Now our hero's part is played"
And they continue as the lights come on and they get up to go
"And we were all betrayed fo our champion he screams and cries like us"
Do they deserve to know that...

Yes
I'm unprepared
And in the face of it all
I guess I get just the littlest bit scared
Yeah me
I feel around
In the darkness of an empty house
And there's nothing there
Just a terrified chameleon hiding out
In the thinnest of air

Should the love inside me die
Come save me I'll be drowning just a few feet from the beach
Please give it your best try
Though I may do my best to distance you and keep your arms from reach
I'm really asking you to stay
But the only way that I know how is by riddle or by game
It seems no on wants to play
And as I float on out to sea I never really sink
I just drift and say that...

Yes
I'm unprepared
And in the face of it all
I guess I get just the littlest bit scared
Yeah me
I feel around
In the darkness of an empty house
And there's nothing there
Just a terrified chameleon hiding out
In the thinnest of air

If ever I can ease your pain
Well I don't think I'd release you I'd spin fairy tales instead
Or else you'd never need me again
And though I know that hold's pathetic it's letting go that I greater dread
Call it a joke to hide a dream
And it takes a good deal more than joking to make any dream come true
So rock & roll and kick & scream
For what it's worth I can't resist this flame and fire
To finally say to you that...

Yes
I'm unprepared
And in the face of it all
I guess I get just the littlest bit scared
Yeah me
I feel around
In the darkness of an empty house
And there's nothing there
Just a terrified chameleon hiding out
In the thinnest of air

Yes
I'm unprepared
And in the face of it all
I guess I get just the littlest bit scared
Yeah me
I feel around
In the darkness of an empty house
And there's nothing there
Just a terrified chameleon hiding out
In the thinnest of air
