lyrics

where will you be when the gavel falls
polishing the statue of the man who built the mall
he was a man of vision a man of grace
just an honest country boy with empire in his face
who went off chasing destiny beyond the pasture gates
then came the morning when his shadow fled
woke up alone all alone in his own head
screaming oh no there’s no escape
and as the walls came creeping in
he sucked his thumb pulled the cover to his chin
suddenly it’s much too late
and the rain don’t fall but the sun don’t shine
on dear mother’s backdoor where she still must do her time
just sitting around wondering what she missed
visions of her childhood love with farewell on his lips
who went off seeking gravity beyond the western cliffs
then came the morning when her shadow fled
woke up alone all alone in her own head
screaming oh no there’s no escape
and as the walls came creeping in
it’s hard to find a reason to begin
suddenly it’s much too late
take me down to the elderwoods my darling
take me down to the elders everyday
have you found what it was that you were after
have you found what it was that you had lost
