What They Say


They say it's better to let sleeping dogs lie
They say there is a danger in the awakening

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks
They say there's life in the old dog yet

They say that every dog has his day
Does this include sleeping dogs?

They say what you don't know might kill you
But all you know is that the dog sleeps

Maybe, just maybe, his awakening will make you stronger
Maybe you will see the light

I am an old dog
You are an old dog

Maybe both of us old dogs can wake up
Maybe both of us old dogs can learn new tricks

They say it's better to let sleeping dogs lie
