From the album Hallowed Ground
Words and music by:
When the mystery has faded,
and you discover then that this is all there is.
Will you still be fascinated?
When the light reveals, all the working gears
In the clock upon your wall
When the patterns you’ve been tracing begin to make some sense.
Will it still be so amazing?
Once you’ve learned the trick
It’s just another tick, of the clock upon your wall.
You used to savor every moment.
But now apathy has robbed you of your gift
Will you wake in time to save it?
Or will you let it slip through your fingertips
And watch the hour fall…
