For a good life, we just might have to weaken

[link to video] It’s a Good Life if You Don’t Weaken, The Tragically Hip

When the colour of the night
and all the smoke for one life
gives way to shaky movements,
improvisational skills,
a forest of whispering speakers
let’s swear that we will
get with the times,
in a current health to stay
let’s get friendship right
get life day-to-day

in the “forget-yer-skates” dream
full of countervailing woes
In diverse-as-ever scenes
proceeding on a need-to-know
in a face so full of meaning
as to almost make it glow

0 for a good life, we just might have to weaken

And find somewhere to go
– go somewhere we’re needed
find somewhere to grow
– grow somewhere we’re needed.

find somewhere to grow
– We grow where we are needed

Cause in the “forget-yer-skates” dream
you can hang your head in woe
and this diverse-as-ever scene
know which way to go
