Time will swallow
Your precious time
Like magic create the future
What makes man so fickle?
Who put the daggers in those eyes?
Was it to learn
Through dark days of struggle?
Was it to burn
To burst all our bubbles?
Thunder and rain
Well the cynical flame will it heat, stick and blister?
Thunder and rain
Evangelistic brother
Should be banging a tambourine
Go wash your hands and fingers
