meaning (this and that)

the poet, the painter, the singer, the bard,
all finding our ways right back to the start
the cop, the judge the prisoner's guard
they're sneaking around in our mother's backyard

the thought, the story, the pages of myths
the hidden variable, the maybe, the if
the joints, the coke, the smokes, the junk
it's not rap, it's not noise, bet your ass it ain't punk

when enough iS enough then you walk out the door
the search, the find, the look, the score
the ups, the downs, the highs, the lows
the cafes, the bars, the people at shows

the reason i'm here, it's why i came back
the reason i left, the feeling, the act
i called yesterday, we seem so detached
and as far as i know, the this means the that

as far as i know, the this means the that
in fact, white could be blue and blue could be black
my neighbors are yelling from their box, from their shack
and as far as i know that means this and this means that.
