Music by: todd nichols and toad
Lyrics by: glen phillips

All in all it's just as well
Water moves, earth is still
Time is slower still
Half an hour is 30 days
Nothing moves at all this way
Hold on, I can wait

Life lies burning, I am only just as much as I can make myself
And I lie burning, life is only just a part of it
I can't help myself

All in all it's just the sun
Catch the wind, hold it down
Cold when evening comes
All in all it's just as well
Catch the river, make it still
Water turns the mill

Life lies burning, I am only just as much as I can help myself
And I lie burning, life is only just a part of it
I can't help myself

All in all it's just as well
Water moves and earth is still
Time is slower still
Half an hour is 30 days
Nothing moves all this way
Hold on, I can wait

But I can't wait
I can't wait
I can't help myself
