Cycle

words/music © matt ralph 2000

I know I know not a lot,

But I’m going to use all the knowledge I’ve got,

Cause I wanna face it,

I wanna change,

Cause there’s too much pain going round,

Cycling in habits that crush people down,

A child feels it’s right,

They’re told that it’s wrong,

It’s no wonder they’re so fucked up,

They don’t know what’s going on,

And oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Until we stop and face the lies,

Until we hurt,

Until we cry,

Oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Til you and I stop the cycle,

Slow it down to look into our lives to find,

The perfect child,

I want to know about love,

How do I get it,

What should I do,

If you could write me a book,

I’ll pay great attention,

I’ll try to change my look,

I’ll take your aggression,

Take back what I said,

It’s all wrong,

It’s too hard,

I’ve fucked up again,

And oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Until we stop and face the lies,

Until we hurt,

Until we cry,

Oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Til you and I stop the cycle,

Slow it down to look into our lives to find,

The perfect child,

What’s that?

It’s not me?

I’m alright?

Am I human?

But these things are all wrong,

And I’m gonna cure them,

I’ve tried to be good,

But your goods always moving,

Your guides to behavior I find a bit confusing,

And oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Until we stop and face the lies,

Until we hurt,

Until we cry,

Oh it’s gonna go round and round,

Til you and I stop the cycle,

Slow it down to look into our lives to find,

The perfect child,
