lyrics

One brother
Had his heart bent
Toward a princely comportment
(He had it all, you see;
It was the same to me)
What bounty he was given
Beside a grief had been riven
In spite of equity
He harbored jealousy

Believing in a fiction
Is just a form of addiction
To which the world surrounding
Never answered no
Though not my aim to refuse him
Still in the end reduced
I had to let him go

Buried in the sand
Carried out to sea
Foundered on dry land
Spend some time with me

Another
Slave to feeling
Had set a brave brain to reeling
He found a hard escape
Within a bottle shape
No vessel could contain him
He parted ways with the main trim
And took a different course
Outrunning all remorse

The burning of his engine
Would cause a stray intervention
At which the world surrounding
Always answered no
Though at great pains to embrace him
Yet in my own disgrace
I could not let him go

Buried in the sand
Carried out to sea
Foundered on dry land
Spend some time with me

Smiling faces
Once so kind
Time erases
Won’t you mind?

It never seems a great time
To walk a strained kind of straight line
But as the world surrounding
Disappears from view
I’ll try my best to remember
How in a green estate
I put my faith in you

Buried in the sand
Carried out to sea
Foundered on dry land
Spend some time with me
