Part 2 “Taking the Fall” (


Sitting in New York City, on the Lower East Side/Chinatown today,

I left Minnesota this morning, had to clear my head and get out of my way,

This has been the winter of, everyone's discontent,

But change and spring are here and I can feel I'm getting closer to the end


Taking the fall, I'm just gonna take it all,

Taking the fall, again,


I've been lost and lonely, been confused as I have ever really been,

Been looking for someone to understand me, to endure being my friend,

Sitting on my island, I was hoping a passing ship might slow down to see,

But maybe it's better if they go right by and travel out to sea


Taking the fall, I'm just gonna take it all,

Taking the fall, again,

Taking the fall, I’m just gonna take it all, taking the fall, again, taking the fall, again…
