john cale – time stands still lyrics


the grandeur that was europe
is sinking in the mud
the savagery that was the church of god
has already joined the club

the melody that was language
was the hook that caught the fish
did you realize how late it was
later than you think

i’m sleeping, sleeping, sleeping
and time is standing still
the roses in the garden are growing in the rain
competing with the poppy for the sun

it’s christmas in the wilderness, spring time in j+pan
monsoons happening everywhere, even in your backyard
i don’t want to hear about heartache or dancing in the snow
we’ve all been there, so many times before
