Young and bright But now just a dim light off in the distance. A fallen stone Following the path of least resistance. If I still fight It's just that I'm afraid I'll slide under that spell again. Taken for a fool, Yes I was because I was a fool. Tell me what you'd do, Lost my way when she took me to school. So many times Caught up in my head at night with a leash and a label. [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/for-a-fool-lyrics-the-shins.html ] If I could learn Anything from this then I'd be like The fox in the fable all right If I still fight, It's just that I'm afraid I'll slide under that spell again. The way we used to carry on Is stuck in my head like a terrible song. Taken for a fool, Yes I was and I was a fool. Following the rules Guess I was a very honest tool. Taken for a fool, Yes I was because I was a fool.
