"Does it Really Happen?" as written by and Steve James/squire Howe....
That's what you say
Does it really happen to you
Does that explain
This is the season for this display.
To take a look
In time to move together

Time is the measure before it's begun
Slips away like running water
Live for the pleasure, live by the gun
Heritage for sun and daughter
Down to the slaughter up for the fun
Up for anything.

Could this be true
Does it ever happen to you
And can you prove
That wheels go 'round in reason
You take a step
In time,
To move together


You walk, the way
You take, the path
To be, assured
You draw, a graph
The scale, you use
Is all, on black
Be brave, the weight
Will make, the heat
There is, no way
To take-it back.

    General Commentthis song sounds like it's about someone who overreacts to stupid lil things and then ends up causing their own demise (metaphorically speaking of course).

    General CommentThis song is an instrumental masterpiece! The lyrics most probably were chosen after the piece was written. feh. Anderson was not with the band during this album. Groovy forildo.
