lyrics

I saw the fire changing hands
A strange moment in a strange land
I wrote the words in rushing blood
Followed commands from up above


Can you feel the weight of it pressing down
Like the millionth mile, everywhere I look
I can't stand the fate of it
But you've gotta suffer for something now


Everyone
Is holding on
The best they can
In an instant they will burn away
It doesn't matter how much you did here
No one remembers to remember those things


Kaleidoscopes
Are spilling out
To light our paths
With colors that will bend and sway
I get the feeling that when we're talking
Your mind is turning to the things it used to


Let's cleave the bed with heavy rest
Save vapid joy for the ones with less
Of a sense of the spiritual
We've got a terrible day ahead now


And I still wonder if my old man thinks of me
And starts to shudder at the things I've done and seen
But I can't concern myself with that now


Everyone
Is holding on
The best they can
In an instant they will burn away
It doesn't matter how much you did here
No one remembers to remember those things


Kaleidoscopes
Are blowing up
To light our paths
With colors that will bend and sway
I get the feeling that when we're talking
Your mind is turning to the things it used to


You can't stop
The cracks and pops
Livin' in your bones
And I've waited so long
And I won't be stopped
By a Restless thought
