Lyrics

The End of the World
Greenberg/Harpeth Rising

It's the end of the world and the gypsy is calling you
Cold drops of music and jangles and falling leaves
Sharp bitter winds and the birds have all taken
Their last drink of dew and their wings have forsaken you
Moonlight alone can not show you the way
Trough the graveyard where everything starts with a kiss
And I hope you remember the stones that I brought you
To save with the memories you keep in your fist

CHORUS: Drink and be merry, tomorrow's your birthday
You have to keep going though you know how it ends
No matter how holy or artful the reasons
Around and around you must do it again

Follow the path through the endless dark forest
Now talk to the children pretending to understand
Whispering secrets then asking forgiveness
Their eyes have turned black and you try to turn back now
And looking behind you can see what you came for
And so it disintegrates, leaving you helpless
And that's when you call me but now I am empty
And only the stones in your hand can now speak

CHORUS

The planets are circling, slave to the sun god
Who's voice is a breath of atomic red wind
And the poor constellations claim your expectations
Imprisoned us all in this fight to the end
You try to return then and looking behind
You can see what you came to believe is the reason
All you can do now is drink and be merry
And know that your prayers are not lost to the wind

CHORUS
