lyrics

Well it may be beyond us to harvest the grain
From this timid summer, heaving with rain
And though they scramble to pair off, and I understand why
Time’s layers are shedding, with a smile so sly

And I know you’re accused of Draconian ways
But they couldn’t be more wrong, you’re brimming with grace
My name’s just some letters, that cling to the page
But they needn’t worry, they’ll never age

Well I stopped all the clocks in this relentless house
I struck up a bargain, I felt just like Faust
I promised my struggle would all be in vain
I promised to pretend that I knew about pain

And I know you’re accused of Draconian ways
But they couldn’t be more wrong, you’re brimming with grace
My name’s just some letters, that cling to the page
But they needn’t worry, they’ll never age

Here’s to swollen ambition, here’s to perilous pride
We are living in a play, this is all an aside
And though they scramble to pair off, and I understand why
Time’s layers are shedding, with a smile so sly

And I know you’re accused of Draconian ways
But they couldn’t be more wrong, you’re brimming with grace
My name’s just some letters, that cling to the page
But they needn’t worry, they’ll never age
