Lotus Man

David Ackles
Language: English



In the sand, listening to the water's song,
While the silent sun dissolves us.
Take my hand, silent too we'll drift along,
'Til the Lotus Man absolves us.

And we'll whittle down the hours,
Throw away the days.
We'll ring our world with flowers
While the other world decays.

In the night, listening to the city sound
Of the people who ignore us,
We'll take flight with the stars ether-bound,
Only galaxies to bore us.

And we'll whittle down the hours,
Throw away the days.
We'll ring our world with flowers
While the other world decays.

In the dawn, listening to the distant drums,
And the distant cannon firing,
We'll be gone long before the battle comes,
Just the thought of war is tiring.

And we'll whittle down the hours,
Throw away the days.
We'll ring our world with flowers
While the other world decays.
