In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldnt greet you
With a simple hello

And the watchers of the flood
Were busy in their chambers
Making sure there was new blood
To sustain their dying veins

But I believed you
No need for further questioning
Im gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way will we go now
On our trip to taller windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know

In the winter that you left
There was business as usual
With the same old fears and frustrations
But the word got out
It was really such a pity

But the judges and the saints
And the textbook committee
Decided you should be left out
Not even mentioned

But I believed you
No need for further questioning
Im gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way will we go now
On our trip to taller windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know
