lyrics

Your soul's down
Sitting on the ropes
Your chin's proud
Taking blow on blow after blow

The clock turns
Spinning round and round
A whirlpool
Trying to pull you down, pull you down

Take us all back home
To where we said we'd grow

Lay down the hourglass and lay in the long grass with me
Go where the birds fly where time has no meaning be free
Be free

Go now
Following the flow
That the herd knows
Following the flow as it goes

Time's no friend of ours
It flows with no regard for us

Lay down the hourglass and lay in the long grass with me
Go where the birds fly where time has no meaning be free
Be free
