"Tumbledown" as written by and Derek William/simmonds Dick....
It's just a matter of time, a figure of speech that springs to mind throughout the day
As the minutes go by, a second thought, a moment lost, time ticks away
And everything changes; forever never lasts; no such thing as always; it's all too soon the past

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown

Rain gods with Zippos, a tin man with a heart
An end with no beginning, a race without a start
That you'll never win; that you cannot lose, and you fall apart

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown

The tarot declares a motion made a finger traps an empty glass
The needles begin to make their mark; you try to hide; you're leaving tracks
I dream of fire and water; dream of deserts; dream up plans
Like mountains and castles, they're only grains of sand that...

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown

Rain gods with Zippos, a tin man's bleeding heart
An end with no beginning, a race without a start
That you'll never win; that you cannot lose, and you fall apart

And Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown
