lyrics

Father time seems to be winding down,
(passively watching his) children kill as mother's around.

The wind she is speaking and sleeping alone (whispering low).
Howling and screeching across the north sky.
A jealous and envious symphonic drone (dark overtone)
is heard from the mountains of time.

Father time seems to be winding down,
(passively watching his) children kill as mother's around.

Water is weeping as droplets unfold (surface aglow),
looking ahead to the eye of the storm.
Ebbing and flowing ten thousand leagues down (looking below),
seeping the future ahead.

Father time seems to be winding down,
(passively watching his) children kill as mother's around.

She's stained with the careless misuse of her life,
her beauty's relinquished with age.
The eons of gluttony, toil and strife
center the focus offstage.
Her climate turns,
her forests burn away.

A blossoming petal to germinate life,
falling suspended through our atmosphere
to a dark, rocky substrate: utopia lost.
The rock becomes solace again.

Father time seems to be winding down,
(passively watching his) children kill as mother's around.
Fleeting warmth, her youth seems to fade away.
Fading away as the strings of time are starting to fray.
