Little Man

Time riding fate across the sky
Destiny and your past are flashing by

The crystal flame of the sea
strips you clear

The blaze of your hope is drawing near

Little Man, little man

Where's your life?

Little Man, little man
No end to your strife
The clouds of your mind form a shell
Your dreams form the center of your cell
Your words they are young,
your thoughts are old

The stories of your life have all been told

Little Man, little man

Where's your place?

Little Man, little man

Blankness is your face

You see the world through half-closed eyes

The words that you hear are mostly lies

You look around
for help to come

Your time is here; your life is done

Little Man , little man

When you're gone
Another little man will be born
