The Heat The Light

lyrics

the shadow of a wall
under the sun
the wall in pieces on the ground
i know where the heat comes from
i know where the heat comes from
where does the cold come from?

the echo of a voice
two hundred years old
like a one track train
pushing through the rain
i know where the light comes from
i know where the light comes from
where does the dark come from?

some things are beyond your control
try try again to enlighten
when you're already lit it's fruitless
try to put blood in your vains
it's all the same
the distance betweeen the truth
and the mind's tollbooth
no price you can pay to get through
i know where the heat comes from
i know where the heat comes from
where does the cold come from?

the shadow of a wall
under the sun
the wall in pieces on the ground
