"Ripeness" as written by and Ian Stephen/sergeant Mcculloch....
I found a thing
In a bad room
Changed the shape of the world for long enough
Got the boat to
As far as I could
Afford it to take me - it was far enough

Mature you said
At the wrong time
Broke my aging skin
'Cause age was mine
Had a field day
Smelt like roses
Harvesting my thought
'Cause up was time

When you asked the question
Did you miss the meaning?
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting?

We will discover
Ripeness twice over

Sing your salt
Worth its weight
In God gold
Curse its fate

When you asked the question
Did you miss the meaning?
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting?

How will we recover
Ripeness when it's over?

I lost something
In a big room
Changed the shape of the world for long enough

When you asked the question
Did you miss the meaning?
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting?
When you climbed on top
Did you fall on shadows?
When clambering off
Did you fall on rainbows?

How will we recover
Ripeness when it's over?

Are you fuel for the fire?
