lyrics

What have we gained? Count all of the lovers obtained.
Paint pictures with collected rain of falcons who flew away.
When nothing remains, have a drink and dance on the drains
As the juice comes unloose, drips down, and flows away.

Someone could teach you, they could figure you out.
While you sit pointing fingers, suspended in doubt.
Pouring out water, in the midst of a drought,
The enlightened children are bottoming out

Scramble the brains. Washed sheets won’t clean off the stains.
Thrown words cannot be explained when nothing is quite OK.
When nothing remains, have a drink and dance on your dreams
As the juice comes unloose, drips down, and flows away.

When the rain comes and blows the dust into the sky
Will you fall down among the waves?
When the bough breaks into shrapnel that could pierce time,
Will you pull splinters from your eyes?

Clouds are gathering now, we’re losing time.
Winds are blowing now, dust in your eye.

When the crow flies into the unforgiving sky
Will you drag it back to the ground?
When the man speaks and all his words amount to lies
Will you fight back or will you die?

Clouds are gathering now, we’re losing time.
Winds are blowing now, dust in your eye.

And we’ll all sing, to be silent would be to lie.
And we’ll all float above the waves.
