Graham Parker - Fly Graham Parker lyrics

As you look into an invisible landscape

And the waves of time part behind your back

As your life crumbles and turns into fiction

And the end of it becomes a fact

The ghosts of children will run in your garden

And play with an imaginary ball

You will be released and pardoned

Now there's nowhere left to fall

Chorus good bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Now fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly

A steam rises out of the water

And a mist hangs over the field

The tears of your wife and daughter

Have all but released their yield

The ghosts of lovers will walk toward you

And beckon you into their arms

And the mighty bells of chaos

Will no longer sound their alarms

Chorus repeat (plus way way way way way)

Shake off your carcass leave us in the dark

That's us fumbling 'round like ants on the ground

In palaces and hovels reading mystery novels

But we never get the plot maybe you got it now

Shake that mortal coil leave us to toil

Take off that weight take off that weight

Listen to the silence know the end of violence

Is a clean slate is a clean slate

Chorus repeat
