"Spring / Sun / Winter / Dread" as written by and Alex Robertshaw Jonathan Higgs....
Their hands loom heavy with only an hour to go
I hold my breath but the seekers will find me
Priest and pauper, the leper can't change his spots
The king knows and I know it, and everybody knows

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way, no way)

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way)

Are those my people or are they barbarians all?
I need a shoulder to talk to about it
Swing the hammer (the hammer)
The fragments (the fragments)
A skull exploding on you, on you all (on you all)
And showers on the infant's bed

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way, no way)

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way, no way)

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way, no way)

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don't want to get older
(No way, no way)

You are a thief and a murderer too
Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

You are a thief and a murderer too
Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

And I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

I know you are a thief and a murderer too
Stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

And I know that you are a thief and a murderer too
You stole the face that you wear from a craven baboon
'Cause you did it to her, and you did it to him
And you did it before and you'll do it again

    General Comment"When you first hear it you might think I'm naming all the seasons, which I'm not of course, but it's this idea of the cyclical nature of growing older and becoming jaded, or part of the establishment... becoming just like all your forefathers and making all the same mistakes. I used to be much more idealistic than I am now, and I worry that I'm caring less about other people and things like that. Neurotic bollocks [laughs]. The verses deal with the fact that throughout time you always kings and paupers, mixed with some of the stuff that was happening in Israel last year with the children being killed on the beach and just how wrong that was. The end breakdown bit about the baboon is a paraphrasing of this 17th century insult - 'you are a thief and a murderer and you have stolen the face of a baboon', or something - and when I first read that, I just thought that it was the most weirdly specific insult. It sounds quite modern as well, I think, and if someone said that to me now, it'd mean just the same. The fact that such an old insult still has the same meaning now brought the whole idea of the song back to me in a very realistic way: things haven't really changed."
