Young Pilgrims

I really like this song, but dammit, I can't find any decent lyrics pages for it. So--


A cold and wet November dawn,
And there are no barking sparrows--
Just emptiness to dwell upon.

I fell into a winter slide
And ended up the kind of kid
Who goes down chutes too narrow,
Just eking out my measly pies.

But I learned fast how to
Keep my head up 'cause I
Know there is this side of me
That wants to grab the yoke from the pilot
And fly the whole mess into the sea.

Another slow train to the coast,
Some brand new gory art
From way on high.
I sink and then I swim all night.

I watch the ice melt on the glass
While the eloquent young pilgrims pass
And leave behind their trail,
Imploring us all not to fail.

Of course I was raised to
Gather courage from those
Lofty tales so tried and true,
And if you're able I'd suggest it
'Cause this modern thought
Can get the best of you.

This rather simple epitaph can save your hide,
Your falling mind:
Fate isn't what we're up against,
There's no design,
No flaws to find.
There's no design,
No flaws to find.

But I learned fast how to
Keep my head up 'cause I
Know I got this side of me
That wants to grab the yoke
From the pilot and just
Fly the whole mess into the sea...
