Following footprints and pawprints
convinced they must know where to go.
Tracks getting deeper and wetter
No need to think when we follow.
Convinced they must know where to go
we showed no respect, forgetting ourselves
we didn't think we just followed
young and dumb having fun.
We showed no respect, forgetting ourselves
we're bulletproof and beyond concern
young and dumb having fun
our heads were too hollow to listen and learn.
We followed those footprint and pawprints
over and under and onto the lake
the snow sinking deeper and wetter
no tracks going back was our final mistake.
