  • Lyrics
  • Their hands loom heavy with only an hour to go
    I hold my breath but the seekers will find me
    Priest and pauper, the leper can't change his spots
    The king knows and I know it, and everybody knows

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way, no way)

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way)

    Are those my people or are they barbarians all?
    I need a shoulder to talk to about it
    Swing the hammer (the hammer)
    The fragments (the fragments)
    A skull exploding on you, on you all (on you all)
    And showers on the infant's bed

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way, no way)

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way, no way)

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way, no way)

    Spring, sun, winter, dread
    I don't want to get older
    (No way, no way)

    You are a thief and a murderer too
    Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again

    I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
    You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again

    You are a thief and a murderer too
    Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again

    And I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
    You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again

    I know you are a thief and a murderer too
    Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again

    And I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
    You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
    'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
    And you did it before and you'll do it again Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
