If the sun burned down
your pathetic little card house
would you just build it back up
without a second thought
of the skies above?
Start somewhere new
Give yourself something to build on
Give yourself a chance
If the rivers rose
To flood your home
Would you just dry it right out
and never consider
moving to higher ground?
If a land slide buried you
And everything you owned
Would you already have arranged
For your family
To mark your home as your grave?
Your life is a house
you build with what you've learned
To protect you. To keep you safe from the world.
But you're picking up the pieces
from every failed design
And forgetting them deep in The back of your mind.
Your mistakes lay the groundwork
It's up to you to build and improve.
