Same as it ever was.

And you may find yourself, in another part of the world.
Into the blue again; Into silent water.
Under the rocks and stones; There is water underground.
Water dissolving, and water removing; There is water at the bottom of the ocean; Under the water, carry the water; Remove the water at the bottom to the ocean!; Water dissolving, and water removing;
And you may ask yourself; “Well, how did I get here?”
And you might find yourself, living in a shotgun shack.
And you might find yourself in beautiful house, with a beautiful wife.
And you may tell yourself; This is not my beautiful house; And you may tell yourself; This is not my beautiful wife;
And you may ask yourself; “Where does that highway go to?”
Letting the days go by; Water flowing underground.
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down.
And you may ask yourself; How do I work this?
Same as it ever was.
Same as it ever was.
Same as it ever was.
Same as it ever was.
Same as it ever was.
Same as it ever was.
Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
And you may find yourself; Behind the wheel of a large automobile.
And you might ask yourself; Am I right, or am I wrong?
And you might say to yourself;
“My God! What have I done?”
Time isn’t holding up
And time isn’t after us
And here the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Look where my hand was
And you might ask yourself; “What is that beautiful house?”
< Talking Heads >
And you may ask yourself; “Where is that large automobile?”
Same as it ever was.
Once in a lifetime; Let the water hold me down
Same as it ever was.
Into the blue again after the money’s gone; Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.
My 1980’s mental soundscape pulled out David Byrne for the lyric through the blogpost.
Riptide apex at sunset on the beach front.
Lightning strikes ocean @ “Wrong night for the drug drop”.
Rain and thunder at the riptide.
