lyrics

I wonder what this is doing
To our sense of the universe
Caught in a loop stretched out
The constant pull of clouds

Ancient fragments appear
Tuning the air
In a perpetual high noon
Too far and too near

Crossing the current
Never where you think you are
Half past the half
Off the beaten path

No matter how many years
Can’t shake you off my mind
Or sidestep the concept
A thought that’s out of time

History will wear us down
The inevitable returning
As visions slip into dreams
With both ends burning

Crossing the current
Never where you think you are
Half past the half
Off the beaten path

Elsewhere, words ring clear
There’s more to this than meets the ear
Stop me if you’ve heard this before
This world has got a lot to answer for
Stop me if you’ve heard this before
This world has got a lot to answer for

Crossing the current
Never where you think you are
Half past the half
Off the beaten path
