what would a boy do

what would a boy do if he knew
everything there was to know?
would he change the earth
or refuse to grow?
would he travel the world to meet new friends?
or throw in his cards and wait for the end?
love and cherish all mankind?
wait and pray for an easier time?

it wouldnt be me
and it wouldnt be you
there is far too much
we have left to do

in your eyes i see desire
and plenty of ambition too
simple impulses, fragment lies,
theyll get the best of you.
