Electric Light Orchestra – Witness lyrics

I saw an ant devour sherman mountain.
Slip across the floor in the river of honey.
I saw the locust drinking from a fountain.
It smiled at me as I paid my money.
Caus' I'm a witness, witness, see the writing on the wall.
I'm a witness, witness, I say I've seen it all.
Caus' I'm a witness, witness, I've got all the proof.
I'm a witness, witness, I swear to tell the truth.
I saw her buying in the face of fashion.
Who'll believe with her little white lies.
I saw her arrive on my bed of passion.
But I never saw a look of love in her eyes.
Some days my eyes can see for miles and miles around.
Some nights my dreams just take me deep underground.
My minds a time machine, I'm in the future and the past.
The past... scrape away...
(violin solo)
Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
