Lyrics

Quicksand

He gets up each morning and he passes a sigh
Looks out the window and contemplates as his life passes by
There was always a reason why

Beautiful morning he hears himself say
Why wait until tomorrow to find yourself another kind of day
But it never works out that way

Why look for puddles when it’s pouring down with rain
Try touching rainbows when it’s obviously plain there’s no use
When you’re standing still you just don’t get to move

He never sees it coming
Only sees it go
The whole world slowly turning but it creeps upon him before he knows
Well that’s just the way it goes

Why chase your shadow when you’re caught in a hurricane
Try to shovel
When quicksand only remains


Why look for puddles when it’s pouring down with rain
Or try to shovel when quicksand only remains
Why take the trouble to put yourself through the pain
Show a little interest when it’s obviously plain
There’s no use
Standing still you just don’t get to move
