Ben Folds Five Rocky

We were in a park

and I could jump so far.

Seems that all I’d ever done,

is smoking pot out in the car.

And this fear faded in,

…….in my old school.

He says

“Ben, we both know you’re a saint,

I’ve been running through these fields

it’s such a lovely place you drink,

is it your imagination,

it’s been years since I’ve been on my feet?”

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s on it’s way.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s time he went away.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Now I recall,

but I don’t know who,

told me Rocky was a runner,

won a medal back in school.

Now at Christmas Momma says,

you go up in Rocky’s room.

And as we watch the sun go down,

he thanks me for my dreams.

He says “I know you think you are,

but you’re not completely free.

The man who’s seen the spectre of….

is completely free.”

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s on it’s way.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s on it’s way.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Then he smiled,

and he turned and walked away.

He said over his shoulder,

“I’ll be gone when you’re awake.”

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s on it’s way.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Now it’s Rocky’s day,

and it’s on it’s way.

Sun won’t be coming out today.

Ben Folds Five Evaporated

What I’ve kept with me

And what I’ve thrown away

And where the hell I’ve ended up

On this glary random day

Were the things I really cared about

Just left along the way

For being too pent up and proud

Woke up way too late

Feeling hung over and old

And the sun was shining bright

And I walked barefoot down the road

Started thing about my old man

It seems that all men

Wanna get into a car and go

Anywhere

Here I stand–sad & free

I can’t cry and I can’t see

What I’ve done

God…What have I done

So don’t you know I’m numb, man

No I don’t feel a thing at all

Cause its all smiles & business these days

and I am indifferent to the loss

I’ve faith that there’s a soul

whose leading me around

I wonder if she knows

Which way is down…

I poured my heart out

I poured my heart out

it evaporated…see?

Blind man on a canyon’s edge

of a Panoramic scene

Or maybe I’m a kite

That’s flying high & random

Dangling a string

Or slumped over in a vacant room

Head on a stranger’s knee

I’m sure back home

They think I’ve lost my mind.
