The Elements of Life

  O Time,
Why are you pouring sand out my eyes?
  O Sin,
Why do you scatter my cries...
     like the east wind?
Life's hard put I pretend
I try to fight it but the heat
     got me on the run,
being chased by the rays of the sun
And life keeps gripping and time keeps slipping
              slipping away
as the wind tosses me around like hay
      upon the land
 I would cry...
   but I'm a man
O, there's nothing wrong...
  just got something in my eye
And strong songs keep passing by
      in the dark night,
   Praying for the daylight
