Ben Folds Five - Michael Praytor, Five Years Later

It was the opposite of
Fire and Rain
You know the song
I never thought
I'd see this guy again
But I was wrong
Oh every five years
Since 1972 when at recess
He recruited me to try to kick
The church down to the ground
Michael Praytor
So random
Who knows why some satellites
Come by and by
While others disappear
Into the sky
Good morning mirror
Break the change to me
I tried to stay too close to see
That there's a pattern in the tiles
And a fool who marks the miles
It was long hair
And this time it was no hair
Seeming thin divorced inspired
Engaged in chemo
born again and fired
Michael Praytor
So random
Who knows why some satellites
Come by and by
While others disappear
Into the sky
Disappear into the sky
Hey
At Hanes Mall parking lot at 5am
I saw him sleeping in his car
I've been up all night
from New York
Bumming out on 95
Now I'm 30 and
We all live with our parents
And my wife
He said
She kicked me out
I said Same here
Guess I'll see you 'round
I'll see you around
Guess I'll see you 'round
I'll see you around
