Wind blows memories off the shelf
you find the meanings to the words you taught yourself.

when your old states of mind
cut across the great divide
you're under the gun

hard to focus through the tears
never realizing its all becoming clear

when you blow past the lines
that you used to define
you're under the gun.

And you never had a chance to recognize
All the truth mixed with their lies

when you blow thru the lines
that you used to decline
you're under the gun.
