Lyrics

Ride down with the waves
And crash them on the shore
Take the money out of my hands
And come back asking for more
Fly out with the wind
Don't look down to the ground
Spinning like a crazy top
And look whom you just found

To be or not to be
To give and not receive
To see and not believe
That's the nature of things

Fall out with the leaves of autumn
All brown, dead, stoney and grey
Build them like a tidal wave
Then get them out of the way
You choose all the words
To make a decent rhyme
I could be your sovereign king
If I could only find time

To be or not to be
To give and not receive
To see and not believe
That's the nature of things

All that time and all that space
And everything in between
We find a certain goal, a certain place
To lead a life we can't replace
But sometimes what you want
You don't really need

Burn down this old house
Recycle all that you can
Sell it for an arm and a leg
Don't charge an extra hand
Tell me what you think
Please I don't really mind
With all the liars in the world
A good word's hard to find

To be or not to be
To give and not receive
To see and not believe
That's the nature of things
