Lyrics

farther down along the range
where the wise ones kept at bay
those that wished secrets stayed as secrets
for mourning minds
i tell myself it's where i belong
among the waves and the once now gone
with my ancestors drums

here comes the morning man
he's gonna tell you where you stand
gonna try to undertake what's falling
he's calling you
here comes the morning man
he's here and yes he can
penetrate the veils that you're holding
he's unfolding you

this side of the solstice bare
where autumn shows its truthful air
is when i'm want to empty scared
my precious stores of evening prayers
i remind myself it's who you are
an orphan soul from a distant star
listening for those bells

here comes the morning man
he's here and yes he can
penetrate the veils that you're holding
he's unfolding you
he's gonna tell you where you stand
gonna try to undertake what's falling, he's calling you
you and i are bright
oh i need anyone but you
our lives to me are art
until a morning tears apart
and leaves what's on my mind

here comes the morning man
he's watching, he's watching
sha-la-la-la-la
here comes the morning man, he's watching
here comes the morning man, he's watching
he's watching
sha-la-la-la-la
