Tell me dark heart of my deep sleep
where the past drops in like unwanted guests
rattling their chains of thought, shuffling their feet
peering into things I thought Id laid to rest
and for all Ive left undone theres another dream to come
once there were wars fought over spice and salt
and the stick of gold became the standard measure
nothing much has changed in this modern age
and it wont until the pains not worth the pleasure
and for all weve left undone
theres another war to come.
I want to feed and water the horses,
the course is long and dry
Cant do it alone oh no we cant although weve tried and tried and tried
we may not deserve you, well come to serve you by and by
Feed and water the horses
where they lie.
I miss the smell of ink on paper and its morning pull
all the news comes via link now all so virtual
I dont know what to think
I dont know what to feel
the beginning of the end or reinvention of the wheel
and for all weve left undone
we are still evolution
I want to feed and water the horses,
the course is long and dry
Cant do it alone oh no we cant although weve tried and tried and tried
we may not deserve you, well come to serve you by and by
Feed and water the horses
where they lie.
I realize that the beast lie there in our plans
peacefully sleeping, but faithfully keeping
theyre ready for the burden man
but if you knew something (peacefully sleeping)
theyd take you to something (faithfully keeping)
you are dying for your burden man (theyre ready for the burden man)
Wouldnt you need it? (Wouldnt you need it?)
Wouldnt you feed it? (Wouldnt you feed it?)
Wouldnt you praise it evermore?
Feed and water the horses
the course is long and dry
Cant do it alone oh no we cant although weve tried and tried and tried
we may not deserve you. Well come to serve you by and by
Feed and water the horses where they lie.
