This song was created for Game of Bands round 225 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes V"

Lyrics:

At the train ahead
A whistle sings out
On a highway once built for cars
Bikes rattle past
In the growing lane
Move slowly but we'll arrive

When the wind's about
And sun is up high
We can recognize that we're awake
In cloudy years
Or a tidal wave
It's time to pay the piper for the tune

Do you have just a little more time
Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
It's a lot to recover like this
Hard to swelter with the AC on

By the scenic path
A lucky tree roots
In a pasture once paved a lot
Light dapples grass
Through the willow leaves
They only yearn for the rain

But the drops are even now small packages
Micro reminders of unguarded greed
We allowed a ticking bomb to spoil a splendor
It'll stop ticking down if we don't cut fuse

On an obelisk
Below a snowdrift
In a downtown once built for cars
Some epitaph
For a life long lost
"This Eden we did forsake…"

Do you have just a little more time
Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
It's a lot to recover like this
Hard to swelter with the AC on

Do you have just a little more time
Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
It's a lot to recover like this
Hard to help her by the road we're on
[Exit]
