Human Wheels Lyrics

This land today shall draw its last breath

And take into its ancient depths

 

This frail reminder of its giant dreaming self

 

While i with human-hindered eyes

 

Unequal to the sweeping curve of life

 

Stand on this single print of time

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

While the clock keeps the pace

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

Help the light to my face

 

That time today no triumph gains

 

At this short success of age

 

This pale reflection of its brave and

Blundering deed

For i descend from this vault

 

Now dreams beyond my earthly fault

 

Knowledge sure from the seed

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

While the clock keeps the pace

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

Help the light to my face

 

This land today my tears shall taste

 

And take into its dark embrace

 

This love who in my beating heart endures

 

Assured by every sun that burns

 

The dust to which this flesh shall return

 

It is the ancient dreaming dust of god

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

While the clock keeps the pace

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

Help the light to my face

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

While the clock keeps the pace

 

Human wheels spin round and round

 

Help the light to my face
