VILLAGERS


The Waves Lyrics

Intro

There are waves up in the diamond sky
Stronger than you and I
I'm a wave, I break through the barrier reef
Cut through the carbon sea, approaching the shore

Look at the sky, look at the trees
Man it's all the same to me
Look at the cars, look at the birds
And all of these invented words
One body's dying breath is another's birth
What are you running from, what are you running from?

Sister jury, brother judge and you will recognize this grudge
Buried deep beneath the sands and these ridiculous demands
No time for innocence, or sitting on the fence
What are you gonna do, what are you gonna do?

When the waves cover the coastal plain
The tents and the cars and the trains
And the trains of honeybees, cemetaries
Of well insulated dignitaries
All screaming of the memory of a human love
For anything or anyone

Look at the birds, look at the bees
Damn it's all the same to me
Look at the girls, look at the gold
Gathered, beat and bought and sold
One man's innocence is another's chance
What were you thinking of, what were you thinking of?

Now please let me boil it down to this, my son
This party's getting wet, but it ain't over yet
So what is it gonna be, what is it gonna be?
Just let the waves cover the coastal plain
The fear and the guilt and the pain

And the trains of honeybee jealousy, of well insulated bigotry
And if you don't agree, you'd better get back inside your cave
'Cause we're all dancing with the waves
Up in the diamond sky
Stronger than you and I
I'm a wave, I break through the barrier reef
Cut through the carbon sea, approaching the shore

Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
Approaching the shore
