Live version (Sashimi)

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, life ticks away

And everything changes
Forever never lasts
There's no such thing as always
It's all too soon the past

And tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown

Raingods with zippos
A tin man's bleeding heart
An end with no beginning
Well it's just a race without a start
That you'll never win
That you cannot lose
So you fall apart

C'mon

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
It's just a race without a start
That you'll never win
That you cannot lose
So you fall apart

C'mon

Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown

Tumbledown

Tumbledown

We tumbledown
We tumbledown
Tumbledown
We tumbledown
Tumbledown
We tumbledown

Tumbledown we tumble
We tumbledown we tumble
Tumbledown tumble
Tumbledown

Hello

C'mon


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, life ticks away

And everything changes
Forever never lasts
There's no such thing as always
It's all too soon the past

And tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown

Raingods with zippos
A tin man's bleeding heart
An end with no beginning
It's just a race without a start
That you'll never win
That you cannot lose
So you fall apart

And tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown

A'right

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

Well 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
It's just a race without a start
That you'll never win
That you cannot lose
So you fall apart

C'mon

And tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown tumbledown tumble tumble tumbledown

Tumbledown
Tumbledown
We tumble
We tumbledown
Tumble tumble tumbledown
Tumble tumbledown
Tumbledown we tumble
We tumbledown oh we tumble
Tumbledown we tumble
Tumbledown

Thank you
