My dad has this album and when I was in kindergarten we listened to this every morning on the way to school. I love this song so much. I remember singing to it when I was around 7 every single morning. It was my favorite song as a kid.

In time or so I'm told, I'm just another soul for sale, oh well, the page is out of print, we are not permanent, we're temporary, temporary, same old story, I'm the voice inside your head, you refuse to hear, I'm the face you have to face....

Keep you in the dark, you know they all pretend, keep you in the dark, and so it all began, send in your skeletons, sing as their bones go marching in..again, the need you buried deep, the secrets that you keep are ever ready...
