Underground

Lyrics From the LP "The War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness", 2017

I've a palm full of fingers and a fate on my hand ...
I've got a pocketful of things I'm rememberin' ...
I've a little while yet, still, to see the Sun;
I've got a lifetime, yet, to be One.

The music, in a way, is a sleight of hand ...
You've got to time the song just to beat the train ...
I've got a little while left 'till the people "spill";
Five minutes to find some time to kill.


It's been a long time.
I've come a long way.
Spend a lot of time alone
these days ...
Just haunting the train.
Just haunting the same old stations.


I tend to keep my head above the clouds ...
But to make a few I go Underground.
I've got a little while left still 'till evening comes;
I've got a long night, still, before I'm done.


It's been a long time.
I've come a long way.
Spend a lot of time alone
These days ...
Just haunting the train.
Just haunting the same old spaces.

Just haunting the same
Just haunting the same old places.

Just haunting the trains
Playing the same old stations.

Just haunting the trains
Just haunting the same old places.

It's been a long time healing, now
Playing down here, underground. (Say it) (x 8)
