Dream on child of change

Throw your javelin through the sun

Pierce the heart of everyone

Though we push to slave the days

This is not reality, this is just formality

The cup is only being filled

For a chance to have it spilled

Flowing--just like the days

Sailing--just like the days...

    General Commentthis could be about Rimbaud, though knowing GBV it could also be nonsense. still, one of Rimbaud's most famous poems (The Drunken Boat) does involve flowing and sailing; the cup line also fits.

    General CommentOne of the shortest, and probably the best, GBV song.
