lyrics

I wanna be a good man,
I wanna do right,
I wanna see the whole world,
Walk into the light,
And I don't wanna go down,
Without a good fight,
If I wasn't such a pacifist (coward),
I could make it all right.

I'm a walking disaster,
I suppose you could say,
But I know what I'm after,
It's just a long way away,
And when I think I can taste it,
On the tip of my tongue,
There's a subtle reminder,
Of what I haven't done.

Cus happiness and laughter,
Are the rewards that you get,
In the here and now here-after,
And a life without regret,
But the pain it takes to earn it,
I'd rather forget,
Cus I'm a pretty slow learner,
With a lot to confess.
(So what do you suggest?)

The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...? ... more
