Who Knows More Than Folk?

To yield without coercion       [Roland]

To move without a shove       [Beefy]

Requires a different version       [Roland]

Of unrequited love       [Beefy]

It needs a broader basis       [Roland]

It needs a tender hand       [Beefy]

To steer you out of stasis       [Ethetran]

To take a firmer stand       [Roland]

Against such rank desertion       [Apsley]

So set aside your grieving       [Roland]

For the love that never could       [P]

Reverse the signs of leaving       [Roland]

Or the minds of those who would       [Ethetran]

Continue without reason       [Beefy]

And, through the winter, bring       [Roland]

A remedy for treason       [P]

That vanishes in spring       [Roland]

To prove the heart's deceiving       [Beefy]
