You better look twice and you better be ready
‘Cause you never know just what is waiting round the corner for you
Of course there’s nothing you can do
Being prepared will not save you
So brace yourself and belt up and you just might pull through

Take a step back, take stock, take a breather
A doubter’s a believer who hasn’t seen the evidence yet
And though the proof is hard to get
For things that haven’t happened yet
All your logic is a trick to make you think that everything that is is set

Blow, blow, pour the water to put out the fire
If life is a dream then your dreams are something higher
Run, run faster than the wind that clears the dust
If you can’t trust your gut, then what can you trust?
