As I was taught to lead, I was fed well on what had come before
Everyone who'd ever lived, left a lesson regarding what's in store
They were just like you and me, guessing their asses off
Oh yes, they tried to guess well
It's our turn now, I hope we're forgiven
Chalk it up to knowledge and change and life itself

And as I shall learn to follow, I'll feed the leaders with everything I can
They'll bring revolutions that try as I may, I just won't understand
They will be just like you and me
Pretending they're not guessing as if we couldn't tell
It'll be their turn then, I hope we can forgive them
Chalk it up to knowledge and change and life itself

It seems a cycle that we all seem to share
The passing from hand to hand of our pride and despair
Both parents and child cry apathy but everybody cares
And then we vanish in thin air
And only time is there, time and a legacy

History holds questions for everyone
A story that's only just begun
Blind passed the goddamn horizon
Sees more than father, less than son
Life and death merely pretending
We're part of the infinite ending

We are gonna teach and learn
We're gonna get fed well and then we shall feed
We, we are ancients
We are brand spanking new
We shall follow and lead
'Cause we are simply you and me
Improving our traditions on the brink of heaven and hell

We each get a turn and then we're forgiven
And we call it knowledge and change and life itself
And we call it knowledge and change and life itself
And we call it knowledge and change and life
