Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

As the world flies by...


children are often curious
their parents are sometimes furious
the flames are burning high
we are watching them, you and i
you and i

the people are sometimes sad
the news is mostly bad
but we hold each other
for now, none other
just you and i
just you and i
as the world flies by

fly, fly, fly
bring your body
or leave it behind
as the world flies by
just you and i
we hold each other
we hold each other
we hold each other
into the night

we saw the new moon above the water
silver dad and mother/daughter
the waves break like your heart on the shore
like a thousand times before
we always ask for more
just you and i

not everyone stays up all night
can't all make it to the morning light
between the clouds and the deep blue sea
there is something for you and me
but it doesn't matter
it doesn't matter
as the world flies by

fly, fly, fly
bring your body
or leave it behind
as the world flies by
just you and i
we hold each other
we hold each other
we hold each other
into the night


the people are sometimes sad
the news is mostly bad
but we hold each other
for now, none other
just you and i
just you and i
as the world flies by
