Down To The Well 04:06
Here comes your hero wrapped in golden skin The dark clouds are coming feel the weight of the wind If you’ve got the money then you can come on in Just try and fly tonight The fuse is lit and the hypocrites are taken for a ride I heard you’re in the tower selling snake oil on the side We’ve got to fix this world and heal this great divide And why? I’m getting dry I’m going down to the well I’m going down can’t you tell There goes your hero blinded by the sun Selling secrets down the road away from everyone Got the motor running I’m not the only one And why? I’m getting dry. I’m going down to the well I’m going down can’t you tell I’m going down to the well I saw you standing Way down by the riverside I’ll meet you on the other Oh yeah
If you want to hear me cry just say her name If you want to see me weep or go insane Nighttime to sunrise if you hear a sobbing sound Here comes tomorrow so I must be feelin’ down If you need to hear me cry just say her name I was not good at goodbye or playing games Left by the station as her train pulled out of town My destination was never written down Goodnight and goodbye to all our friends Dunno what comes next But I know how it ends If u wanna hear me weep Hear that sobbing sound You’ll know you’re in too deep When you start to drown If it’s any consolation You can say we’re no relation say we’re no relation anymore I’ll be getting on my way right round sundown there is nothing more to say it always was your town Nighttime to sunrise if you hear a solid sound Dawn means tomorrow so I must be feelin’ down If you wanna hear me cry If you wanna hear me cry If you wanna hear me cry If you wanna hear me cry
