They start as small and innocent as snow flakes easily brushed away
But for an unknown reason i let them stay
As they build one on top of the other they make it harder for me to walk
Until i cant move and I'm stuck in the cold
When I do oh what a mistake the snow rattles and shakes
It rolls rolls down hill and makes the earth rock
It grows and grows until the first snow flake is lost
Then it all seams pointless but its to late to go back
