Giving away time

Ran, fields and fields
buildings burnt
and no one seen
darkness comes
blackened smoke
down with the power
this is the people
raising our hour
and leaving a taste
so sour
in the mouths of you
and everyone else
come to me
with every broken stone


chorus: Light my way
the light of day
no longer you
no longer me
save me a penny
give me a dime
give me something
give me time
give me time
give me time...........


rustic scenes
rusty needles
must have items and
my days pay
that's what they sell
fancied up
spit-shined
artificial leather
and a false
report of tomorrow's weather


Chorus repeat: light my way
the light of day
no longer me
no longer you
save me a penny
give me a dime
give me time
give me time
give me time
give me time.............

run as fast as you came
take all your things
and take this blame
take your books
take your pictures
empty whores
on water-boarded floors
and another one
for the grave yard
another one washed in
criticism

another fire
another fire
scum dead streets
so
just when you think
just when you run
just when you stand
just when you die
just when its over
then you'll know it
again
so...

Chorus repeat: Light my way
the light of day
no longer me
no longer you
give me a penny
give me a dime
give me anything
give me time
give me time
so give me
ohhhhh
give me time
give me time
ive tried
so give me time....
