We're the day birds
Deciding to fly against the sky
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die

We're the greying herds
Hurting each other with our lives
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die
Born to die, born to die

The drum fish
They beached themselves in Hara-kiri
The blackbirds
They fell in thousands from the sky
Their red wings
Streaming down from the higher seas
Deflected by the grounds

They crowned the sun
They crowned the sun
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done
They were drowned by the only One
But I believe that they are free
Washed by the sun

Our statues
The soaring edifice of our times
Detracted from the ways of the wise
The future will view all history as a crime
So father, tell us when is time to rise

They crowned the sun
They crowned the sun
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done
They were drowned by the only One

But I believe that they are free
They crowned the sun
They crowned the sun
But I believe that they are free
And we believe that they are free
'Cause I believe that they are me
Washed by the sun
