Fish – Tumbledown lyrics

It's just a matter of time a figure of speech that springs to mind throughout the day
As the minutes go by, a second thought, a moment lost, time ticks away
And everything changes, forever never lasts, no such thing as always, it's all too soon the past.

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.

Raingods with zippos, a tin man with a heart
An end with no beginning, a race without a start
That you'll never win, that you cannot lose and you fall apart.

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.

The tarot declares a motion made a finger traps an empty glass.

The needles begin to make their mark, you try to hide, you're leaving tracks,

I dream of fire and water, dream of deserts, dream up plans,
Like mountains and castles they're only grains of sand that

Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown,
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.

Raingods with zippos, a tin man's bleeding heart,
An end with no beginning, a race without a start
That you'll never win, that you cannot lose and you fall apart.

And tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.
Tumbledown, tumbledown, tumble, tumble, tumbledown.

Dick, simmonds (fishy music ltd 1998)
