It's just a matter of time a figure of speech
That springs to mind throughout the day
As the minutes go by, a second thought
A moment lost, time ticks away

And everything changes
Forever never lasts
No such thing as always
It's all too soon the past

Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown

Rain Gods with Zippos
A tin man's with a heart
An end with no beginning
It's just a race without a start

That you'll never win
That you cannot lose and you fall apart

Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown

The tarot declares a motion made
A finger traps an empty glass
The needles begin to make their mark
You try to hide, you're leavin' tracks

I dream of fire and water
Dream of deserts, dream up plans
Like mountains and castles
They're only grains of sand that

Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown

Rain Gods with Zippos
A tin man's bleedin' heart
An end with no beginning
It's just a race without a start

That you'll never win
That you cannot lose so you fall apart

And tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown
Tumbledown, tumbledown
Tumble, tumble, tumbledown
