Say what you want but I think we’ve got it good
It’s not a question of thinking that we should –
Somehow, be entitled to so much more
It’s where we’ve grown up and it’s all that I’ve asked for

Winters can be brutal and summers can feel like hell
But still we go outside, shrug our shoulders and say, “Oh well –
Maybe, next year she will show mercy.”
But we know that it’s just a formality

Someday we will all return to her

She can forgive us but let’s not force our hand
Where you’re from, take pride in where you stand –
This land of 10,000 bands
They all proclaim the same local command:

Someday we will all return to her
