Echo & The Bunnymen – Ripeness lyrics

I found nothing in a back room
Change the shape of the world
For long enough
Got the boat till as far as I could
Before it could take me
It was far enough

Mature you said at the wrong time
Broke my aging skin 'cause age was mine
Had a field day
Smelt like roses
Harvesting my thoughts cause up much time

When you grasped the question
Did you miss the meaning
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting
We will discover
Ripeness twice over

Sing your song
Worth it's weight in God gold
Curse it's fate

When you grasped the question
Did you miss the meaning
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting
How will we recover
Ripeness when it's over

I lost something in a big room
Change the shape of the world
For long enough

When you grasped the question
Did you miss the meaning
When you met your challenge
Did you go out fighting
When you climbed on top
Did you fall on shadows
And clammerring off
Did you fall on rainbows

How will we recover
Ripeness when it's over
How will we recover
Ripeness when it's over

(I have _________)
(are you the fuel for the fire)
(and I _________over)
(none of us have _________ to inspire)
(I've discovered my niche here/nietzche?)
(I've discovered my niche here/nietzche?
(when should __________ or something)
(do tell me)
(do you tell me, what's the difference?)
Do tell me
What's the difference
