The sun is slowly fadin’ in the western sky
Sometimes it takes forever for the day to end
Sometimes it takes a lifetime
Sometimes I think I’ll never see the sun again

There’s a heavy smog between me and my mountains
It’s enough to make a grown man sit and cry
It’s enough to make you wonder
It’s enough to make the world roll up and die

I think it’s kind of interesting the way things get to be
The way that people work with their machines
Serenity’s a long time comin’ to me
The fact I don’t believe I know what it means

In the east a shaded moon is hangin’ lazily
I do believe I saw the old man smile
I do believe I did
I do believe he’s been laughin’ all the while

I think it’s kind of interesting the way things get to be
The way that people work with their machines
Serenity’s a long time comin’ to me
The fact I don’t believe I know what it means any more

When the sun is slowly fadin’ in the western sky
Sometimes it takes forever the day to end
Sometimes it takes a lifetime
Sometimes I think I’ll never see the sun again
Sun again
