Just A Lifetime
The Legendary Pink Dots Lyrics


Weeping like the ghost of winter, we watch our tears
kiss ash and turn to steam. We walk on hot coals
where a stream meandered. Tarred and tanned. We
flex and count the tumours on our hands--spreading
swiftly now. For this, we waited just a lifetime.
Sun blessed mirror shaded mad dogs. Blow a kiss we'll
all fall over. Hunting the oasis but there's only cola-
sensurround. A technicolour thrill . . . it costs a fortune,
so it must be real. For just a little sip, we'll
keep waiting (just a lifetime.)
And some of us work underground. We dug a hole and
settled down. We waited for the gentle sound of steady
rain to soak the ground and raattle on our ventilator.
Guess the time we sat there waiting. Yes, you
guessed! We waited just a lifetime.
And dragons walked the earth again; parrafin was free.
A fire-eater went insane and torched the final tree.
And one fine say the planet crumbled, just cos
someone sneezed. For this, we waited just a lifetime.

Weeping like the ghost of winter, we watch our tears kiss ash and turn to steam. We walk on hot coals where a stream meandered. Tarred and tanned. We flex and count the tumors on our hands – spreading swiftly now.

For this, we waited just a lifetime.

Sun blessed mirror shaded mad dogs. Blow a kiss we’ll all fall over. Hunting the oasis but there’s only cola- sensurround. A technicolor thrill … it costs a fortune, so it must be real.

For just a little sip, we’ll keep waiting (just a lifetime.)

And some of us went underground. We dug a hole and settled down. We waited for the gentle sound of steady rain to soak the ground and rattle on our ventilator.

Guess the time we sat there waiting. Yes, you guessed! We waited just a lifetime.

Dragons walked the earth again and paraffin was free. A fire–eater went insane and torched the final tree. And one fine day the planet crumbled, just cos someone sneezed.

For this, we waited just a lifetime.

Dragons walked the earth again and paraffin was free, a fire eater went insane and torched the final tree, and one time fine day the planet crumbled just cause someone sneezed
