Song Lyrics

So with that, I thought I'd take a final walkThe tide of public opinion had started to abateThe neighbours, bless them, had turned out to be all talkI could see their frightened facesPeering at me through the gate
I was looking for an end to this, for some kind of closureTime moved so rapidly, I had no hope of keeping track of itAnd I thought of my friends who had died of exposureAnd I remembered other ones who had died from the lack of it
And in my best shoes, I started falling forward down the streetStopped at a church and jostled through the crowdLove followed just behind me, panting at my feetAs the steeple tore the stomach from a lonely little cloud
Inside I sat, seeking the presence of a GodI searched through the pictures in a leather bound bookAnd I found a woolly lamb dozing in an issue of bloodAnd a gilled Jesus shivering on a fisherman's hook
And babeIt seems so longSince you've been gone, awayAnd IJust got to sayThat it grows darker with the day
Back on the street, I saw a great big smiling sunIt was a good day and an evil day and all was bright and newIt seemed to me that most destruction was being doneBy those who could not choose between the two
Amateurs, dilettantes, hacks, cowboys, clonesThe streets groan with little Caesars, Napoleons and c**tsWith their building blocks and their tiny plastic phonesCounting on their fingers, with a crumbs down their fronts
I passed by your garden, saw you with your flowersThe Camellias, Magnolias and Azaleas so sweetAnd I stood there invisible in the panicking crowdsYou looked so beautiful in the rising heat
I smell smoke, see little fires bursting on the lawnsPeople carry on regardless, listening to their handsGreat cracks appear in the pavement, the earth yawnsBored and disgusted, to do us down
BabeIt seems so longSince you've been gone, you went awayAnd IJust got to sayThat it grows darker with the day
All these streets are frozen now, I come and goFull of a longing for something I do not knowMy father sits slumped in the deepening snowAs I search, in and out, above, about and below
It seems so longSince you've been gone and you went awayAnd IOpened and prayThat it grows darker with the day
