about

The arrangement was hammered together in the late eighties by Mike, Dale and Dave, but never recorded. Until now.

lyrics

sometimes the story tells the character
upon a raft, upon a stormy sea
always a jester, never a thief
roll like thunder in the valley

and now the flesh sustains the bones
eyes of wisdom staring from the stones
sword leaning, tarnishing against a tree
lies in the open now to be taken by thieves

and the seasons spin without a care at all
shadows from the world outside like squirrels on the wall
the elm leaves swept away by autumn wind
They leave you longing to be free again....

the benevolent will bow and pass
to an unanswered oaken door
unwillingness to heed a map
or the path of those before

when you look into the hourglass
is it reflection that you see?
and not the mound of time that's past
or the sand cascading slowly

have you come to terms with your perception
not seeing the supply
you can't invert the hourglass
when both your hands are tied

when you look into the hourglass
is it reflection that you see?
and not the mound of time that's past
or the sand cascading slowly
