It's a long way up to the rotary hotel
But that's where all of our dreams fell
Through the torn curtains
I saw that nothing is for certain
As I walked down to that sweet brown lake
I saw that all of our mistakes lied
In the surface about to break

And all these rows of afternoon shadows
Melt with morning bright arrows
The rows of afternoon shadows
Melt with morning bright arrows
And I lost the fight with the battle
So won't you come to help me this time

Out by the shipwrecked academy
I had the sense kicked out of me
And I lost all of my feelings
Maybe that's where all of our dealings went sour
Right on the hour, the traffic slowed and magically golden
Horns hit the window as you walked out

It's a long way up to the rotary hotel
But that's where all of our dreams fell Through the torn curtains
I saw that nothing is for certain

As all these rows of afternoon shadows
Melt with morning bright arrows
The rows of afternoon shadows
Melt with morning bright arrows
And I lost the fight with the battle
And everything was unraveled
Oh I lost the fight with the battle
So won't you come and help me this time

Oh it's a long way up (x3)
Oh I was checking out of this lonely room
When I got started watching something on the tube
Now I'm still lying here
