Michael Praytor, Five Years Later

Original Artist: Ben Folds Five

It was the opposite of "Fire & Rain"
You know the song
I never thought Iíd 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 try to stay too close to see
That thereís a pattern in the tiles
And a fool who marks the miles
It was long hair
And this time it was no hair
Seen him thin, divorced, inspired
Engaged, then 'came a born again and fired

Michael Praytor, so random
Who knows why some satellites
Come by and by
While others disappear into the sky

At Hanes Mall parking lot at 5am
I saw him sleeping in his car
Iíd been up all night from New York
Bumming out on 95
And weíre 30
And we all lived with our parents
And "my wife," he said, "she kicked me out"
I said, "same here, guess Iíll see you 'round"
(Iíll see you 'round)
Guess Iíll see you 'round
(Iíll see you 'round)

Michael Praytor, so random
Who knows why some satellites come by
and then they disappear
