lyrics

frying in the dying sun
one day you must end your run
but to sleep under that cherry tree
remember who you used to be
and what you’d do hadn’t you done
and what they’d say had you stayed
to the ground

the sand is where the hand cracks stone
where the stars have never shone
but to hide inside that dead latrine
and making all that could’ve been
and what I’d be had I only learned
what I’d be had it burned
to the ground

bonds, bonds are breaking
bridges, bridges tumbling

there is only that much I can take
there is only that much I can fake
but to sleep under that cellophane
or to hop into that aeroplane
what you plant ain’t what you reap
if only they’d forever sleep and be bound
to the ground

bonds, bonds are breaking
bridges, bridges tumbling
