Album: The Century of Self (2009)
  • There, but for the grace of our gods go you and I
    Down roads none dare to follow
    Sands buried the graves of our former lives
    Smile and wave and let them go
    To rise above the mires of old days long died
    Know they won't come again
    Let the years roll in and drown our yesterdays

    Time is a stream with no end in sight
    As dark as it is cold
    Flowing by as we pray for the source to run dry
    That we may never grow old
    We long to rest our tired bones by our fires
    And drink to the days
    Let the years roll in and drown our yesterdays

    Born on our knees we all long
    For a fawn to sooth and calm
    And with our arrows bring her down

    Here, let me rest in your loft for a while
    Before I have to walk home
    Through the streets bathed in the light
    Of a thousand fires
    Of a cold and angry world
    In time we'll reconcile with old days long died
    Know they won't come again
    Let the years roll in, drown our yesterdays Writer/s: ANTHONY EDWIN PHILLIPS
