It's hard to talk to people who remember what I say I guess I need an amnesiac priest or something Or a stranger on a long bus journey to somewhere far away

One day the desert will cover all the earth With only the wind to sing in the silence All my secrets buried forever in the blown dust It seems so simple but they just don't get it I meant what I said at the time that I said it Nothing is ever meant to last I want no mirror, I want no shadow I want my follies to have no echo Only the ties to hold on fast Nobody has their consciences clean Loyalty in the end will be enough This family thicker than blood The way we grew together, roots twisted together And everybody thinks what they shouldn't think Everybody does what they shouldn't do Everybody wants what they shouldn't want Hold on to me and I'll hold on to you Maybe I'm wrong but they just don't get it I meant what I said just at the time that I said it Nothing is ever meant to last I want no mirror, I want no shadow I want my follies to have no echo Only the ties to hold on fast We spread our mischief with a little glint in the eye Where there is war we like to bring peace Where there is peace we want to bring war Seduce the priests and break it all But don't ask me to remember It seems so simple but they just don't get it
