lyrics

Out of Time

Somewhere under a flowing night sky
We stood transfixed by the lines
A figure stepped in from the darkness
and said, “son, I think that we’re out of time.”

And I heard the prayer of an earthen man
for sun to follow rain to follow sun again

Wheels in motion, a distant world’s light
spills through a window of ancient (faded) stone
we chart the movement of each moment
of horizons and rises, of the growing unknown

And I saw the shadows of the ebb and flow
look to the moon to sew and reap and sew again my friend

And if we can’t believe these signs
Can we hide behind these lies or are we out of time?

I find that the seasons are shifting
drifting uncertainty as weeks pass us by
science and seers deliver predictions
the sands advance, and a river dies

And I saw the figures of earthen kin
chanting words of healing around the fire again my friend

and if we can’t believe these signs
will we hide behind these lies, or are we out of time?

Hands sifting soil, looking for answers,
Satellites tracking a system’s decline
Seeking predictions of rhythms and cycles
Otherwise proffer an ending of time

and if we can’t believe these signs
will we hide behind these lies, or are we out of time?

(Backing) Around the world
