Lyrics
I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
There is sometimes a single secondary phase.
It's not unusual for it to last for days.
And everything is magnified when it is gone.
Reality is only temporary,
Reality is only temporary,
A process imitating things that went before
Without a satisfying answer anymore.
The present just repeats the future and the past.
I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
There is no time for second answer to the past
If yesterday is gone don't try to make it last,
And summer winds have come and gone without a flood.

I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
I think it's over now, I think it's ending.
A thought of coloured clouds all high above my head,
A trip that doesn't need a ticket or a bed,
And everything is smelling sweeter then a rose.
