lyrics

heavy now you know the world -
so why suppose that though the light in the window burns,
tomorrow it will be?

every now and then it turns -
and even though you know it goes, it goes to show in turn.
you'll take you turn - i'll take my turn.

so sing me not your songs of kings
here in earth and smoke
no, sing me not your songs of kings

slow down
hold fast
don't be found
nor tell them where you've been

my friend,

it's lighter than you ever knew -
to ash it goes, so you suppose it turns with or without you
(k)no(w)?

heavy now you know the world
every now and then it turns
heavy now you know the world
every now and then it turns
