Going left, heading right
If you’re not really in you are better out
I’m all the same
Just like the things I see
Someone’s struggling for fame
Others just with their fee
I collect beauty as you know
I live in that small room at
Ground floor Two

There is light when I set it on
And one thing I’ll tell you, Son
Darkness goes nowhere
When it’s lit by a screen
And there’s no one talkin’ out there
I’m getting bored of the scene
So I think I’ll stay inside
To see what I’ve gathered at
Ground floor Two

The ones you refer to as fathers
Yesterday they were just sinners
Well I miss my steps
And there’s the loneliness
Just moving right after left
And I have no one to confess
All this grievin’ me so
I guess I should get out of
Ground floor Two

Surely God gave you the right
To put someone in and someone out of sight
And that’s just good
For all of us
Until we put food
On the table at sunday lunch
And on the other side there’s the same old tune they blow
They’ll wish you goodnight at
Ground floor Two

Did you really tell your children
If it’s God you love or is it believin’?
It must be tough to think about
The blame they did take
When alone and out
They didn’t act for your sake
And it struck me as I got through
The doorstep of
Ground floor Two

So I’m here and afraid
Of things you left to do or to say
It seems some might do
They could even get through
Without any kind of clue
But I don’t believe you
And it’s difficult though I’m leavin’
What’s in and around
Ground floor Two
