Oh, people killing people
Kings to conquer kings
Always in the seeker
Taking the light
Away from me
Death comes to the seeker
And death comes to the fool
Death comes to us all one day
Let the river of time swim over you
Oh swim over you
Oh time swim over you
Mother fighting mother
Children killing kings and kings and children too
[ HELP!!! I can't figure this one out ]
Playin a different tune
The music binds them ho
The music binds them all
The music binds them
{Ahh another line to figure out!!!]
Stronger than the chain gang
Smarter than the song
Let the music bind them
Each my face inside here?
Teach my light to wear a different?
I have many parents
I have only one mother too
Of the open west you waitin'
Sprung me unto you
Sprung me unto you
That sprung me unto you
I have many fathers
But only one mother
Sprung beyond emotion
That sprung me unto you
So I bring a word
So I bring a word here
So lights out away
Death comes to the seeker
Well death come to the fool yes he do
Death come to us all one day
Sit back and let the river of time run over you
Oh and mother make them...
Rhythm is the one I climb as
The heartbeat of the time is beating on us
Speaking of the time is beating on us
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Snap up the gate shut on yourself
Oh yeah
Oh I was dreaming
Oh...???
Some people locked in cages
With the keys on the inside
With the keys on the inside
Ahhh well aww too bad ......[don't know]
King to King oh many colors
Paint the songs that roll to smother everyone
Black as night oh black as night
[don't know???]
If you are in the corner
Locked in the shadow
Don't try to cast your shadow
On the bear upon your [don't know]
Just step out into the light
Yes and let the sun shine bright on you
Just step out into the light
Yes and let the sun shine bright on you
All these changes happen with changes
One day has a good king
One day has a bad king
All the same in time
Be your own king

    General CommentThis is a great song. The reason i can't appreciate it as well as I'd like to is because it's just about immpossible to find a version of this song that doesn't completely suck. But it is a good song, and a very hard one to figure out. It seams like to me to say something about the corruption that people bring to all forms of nature, government, and even the act of living. This is a good song, any difinitive Dave fan should download it.
