The Fuse Lyrics

It's coming from so far away
It's hard to say for sure
Whether what I hear is music or the wind
Through an open door
There's a fire high in the empty sky
Where the sound meets the shore
There's a long distance loneliness
Rolling out over the desert floor

And the years that I spent lost in the mystery
Fall away leaving only the sound of the drum

Like a part of me
(It speaks to the heart of me)
Forget what life used to be
(You are what you choose to be)
It's whatever it is you see
That life will become

Whatever it is you might think you have
You have nothing to lose
Through every dead and living thing
Time runs like a fuse
And the fuse is burning
And the earth is turning

Though the years give way to uncertainty
And the fear of living for nothing strangles the will

There's a part of me
(That speaks to the heart of me)
Though sometimes it's hard to see
(It's never far from me)
Alive in eternity
That nothing can kill

Oh Lord
Are there really people starving still?
Look out beyond the walls of Babylon
How long will their needs go unfilled
I want to say right now I'm going to be around

When the walls and towers are crumbling
(When the towers are tumbling down)
And I will tune my spirit to the gentle sound
(I want to hear the sound)
Of the waters lapping on a higher ground
Saying
Yeah yeah
