lyrics

oh balmy metal
in his greatcoat
heeding the rhythm
of the kettledrum
the beating
its cadence
doesn't tell you
the time,
but time
is running somewhere evil
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
sometimes we fall in place
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
my arms swing ‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
in the siege-works
the standards
we took
all my thoughts
are red and without
any reason
or any meaning
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
sometimes we fall in place
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
my arms swing ‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
aloft in the air
shot whistles
like a melody
for no one
but me
for my time
it will all
come back
to what i know
to be real
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
sometimes we fall in place
my arms swing
they hold
they carry you
my arms swing ‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
