Jon Day / Exhibit B

Gold

Lyrics by Jon Day

(from Exhibit B)

we are what we ought to be
and what we ought to be is alive
we crave the philosophy
the philosophy and wonders of the wild

its not quite clear when we're
placed to see what's right
that we drift on by
as if we were the blind

and as we start making
wrong what's right
in the hind of sight we all find
you finally found your treasure

you've got your gold
you've got your gold gold
and well it's oh, so gold

you're alive
and pace by pace
composing yourself
breathing your good breath

and here tonight
you're shy as shy
but nothing is there
nothing but the passing time

in going for the best
you miss such lovely life
looky-looky straight ahead
loosing sight of left, right

time's ticking you're talking trying to pick it apart
you can stop what you didn't start

we are what we ought to be
and what we ought to be is alive
we crave the philosophy
the philosophy and wonders of the wild

its not quite clear when we're
placed to see what's right
that we drift on by
as if we were the blind

and as we start making wrong what's right
in the hind of sight we all find
you finally found your treasure

you've got your gold
you've got your gold gold
and well it's oh, so gold

you've got your gold
you've got your gold gold
and well it's oh, so gold
