Things

VERSE 1:

And where then did the freedom go they fought so hard to keep?

And when they had passed had it survived, who was left to savor it?

Had it died or had it grown while slowly they had passed?

Could it not be that this image then did starve the hungry flesh?

 

Instrumental Bridge

 

Verse 2:

And where now is the country we toiled and tooled to build?

And where now is the place called home we did lay down to keep?

What of these things and many more that had displaced the man?

 

CHORUS:

Will things remain while we have passed?

Must things remain while we have passed?

Who gave them meaning if not I and though I ask?

 

I tell you, too what good to live to pass on things?

 

Guitar Solo

 

VERSE 3:

And where then did the freedom go they fought so hard to keep?

And when they had passed had it survived, who was left to savor it?

Had it thrived and had it grown while slowly they had passed?

Could it not be that this image then did starve the hungry flesh?

 

Instrumental Bridge

 

Verse 3:

And where now is the country we toiled and tooled to build?

And where now is the place called home we did lay down to keep?

What of these things and many more that had displaced the man?

 

CHORUS:

Will things remain while we have passed?

Must things remain while we have passed?

Who gave them meaning if not I and though I ask?

I tell you, too what good to live to pass on things?

Guitar Solo

To pass on things.

To pass on things.

To pass on things.

To pass on things.
