lyrics

Does it make any difference what statistics say?
If you open up a storybook, it always ends the same
Lots of folks in Nevada will tell you how the land lays

Take a moment, drink in the silence
Numbers aren't your only guidance
You might find you're stationed at the end of the bell curve
If you wake up smiling than you get a little more than you deserve

Take the mass of ages, add the weight of the world to this
Subtract the time that's wasted, multiply it by what you miss
Solve that equation, and it still is what it is

Take a moment, drink in the silence
Numbers aren't your only guidance
You can hem and haw until they kick you to the curb
If you wake up smiling than you get a little more than you deserve

Take a moment, drink in the silence
Numbers aren't your only guidance
You might start at zero if you actually have the nerve
If you wind up with yourself you get a little more than you deserve
