The End Of The Race Lyrics

The End Of The Race - Willy Mason

When they came in the night

They said we take what we like

I said I wish you well but I've been living like hell

I don't have what you need but I can tell you what I see

 

I close my eyes to go to sleep

I feel a gun pressed to my cheek

I see the ocean rolling fast I see the grass I see the grass

See it swallow up the past I see the grass I see the grass

See the hands empty at last I see the grass I see the grass

But all you ask me all you ask all you ask all you ask

What have you got for me

 

What have you got for me

You knew that this day was coming on

 

I woke at first daylight

The sun still shining just as bright

As yesterday when it seemed

The world could end inside a dream

I put on boots and went outside

The enemy is still shooting wide

If they'd believe what I see

They wouldn't shoot so thoughtlessly

I see the ocean rolling fast I see the grass I see the grass

See the hands empty at last I see the grass I see the grass

See it swallow up the past I see the grass I see the grass

But all you ask me all you ask all you ask all you ask

What have you got for me

 

What have you got for me

You knew that this day was coming

So why didn't you start running

Your hands are now too full to get a way

 

And this ain't gonna stop till something

Cures you of all your wanting

Until you lose what you won't give away

 

Its time to make peace with this place

 

 

Call this the end of the race
