To whom it may concern (1972)

Maybe you talk too high, man. 
Maybe I talk too slow. 
But you’ve got to live a little bit faster 
‘cause you’ve got a little less time to go. 

I ain’t lost and I ain’t searching,
but then you know me very well. 
And I can’t change the wind 
and make it blow the other way. 
I’m a fool and I can tell… 

… that I’m alive and that’s all, 
that I can get up just as fast as I fall.
And I can walk and run but I’ll never crawl.
And in the end it doesn’t matter at all. 

I don’t know about the people 
that I read about in books.
And the kings and queens around my room 
with their quiet and dirty looks. 

I know I should be going somewhere, 
I just can’t arrive. 
There’s a reason for believing 
that I’ve never been alive.
Alive. 

I ain’t lost and I ain’t searching,
but then you know me very well. 
And I can’t change the world 
and make it go the other way. 
I’m a fool and I can tell… 

that I’m alive and that’s all, 
that I can get up just as fast as I fall.
And I can walk and run but I’ll never crawl.
And in the end it doesn’t matter at all. 

I don’t know about the people 
that I read about in books.
And the kings and queens around my room 
with their quiet and dirty looks. 

I know I should be going somewhere, 
I just can’t arrive. 
There’s a reason for believing 
that I’ve never been alive. 

I know I should be going somewhere, 
I just can’t arrive. 
There’s a reason for believing 
that I’ve never been alive.
Alive, alive.
