…and

Listen

And as it comes

It must be took
And your life was like a big open book
There before your eyes
Go on
Take a look
And you must last ‘til the end
Learn to love this life
You are just there to clear the air
‘til the clock comes down the stairs

Blue sun at dawn
The earth reborn
And some people have it bad
Yes it’s true
But they wouldn’t
If they did not know you
And you must last ‘til the end
Learn to love this life
You are just there to clear the air
‘til the clock comes down the stairs

“You only want money for the trams
The tram will take you across the river
Through the park
Up the hill
Past the army barracks
Over the hill
To the American cemetery

You couldn’t stand
To hold her hand
Now preservative has run
Through her veins
And she doesn’t feel the wet
When it rains
And you must last ‘til the end
Learn to love this life
Now you must sleep in hungers hall
‘til the clock comes down the stairs
