One day, in a different way I
Will give myself a roll
In this petrifying life
Walking and breathing water
Will never be the same

Try a new scheme
A mans machine
And I try at my best
And I try giving all I can and
Hold it to the window of the world
Closing my eyes

One day, in a definate way I
Will test the heat of the water
With everything in sight
I mean until I am full
As an egg ready to burst

So try a new scheme
With a mans machine
With an insight to try
And I try at my best
And I try and I cry as I listen
To the bustle of the day passing me by

There is life in me left
To strike a blow for effect

Still born goes the everso
Closely guarded line
Oh

One day, in a different way I
Will give myself a roll
In this petrifying life
Walking and breathing water
Will never be the same

Try a new scheme
With a mans machine
With an insight to try
And I try at my best
And I try and I try as I listen
To the bustle of the day passing me by

There is life in me left
To strike a blow for effect
Hahahahahahahahahahaha...

Still born goes the everso
Closely guarded line
Oh

    General CommentOne of my favourite Cardiac songs. Their lyrics are wrapped up in hidden meanings. I think Tim is trying to come to terms with the struggle of life and the inevitable fate of death. Is there a meaning behind life or are we all a obsurd bunch of people running around without rhyme or reason? Get well Tim! We miss you.
