In the last days
my mind washed up on the shore
cast adrift, harrowing shadows
walking along the pathways contemplating

In the last days
we all clung dearly to the vestiges of wealth
but it was always made of sand
disappearing on the land, oh yeah

Reflections in the water deceiving
reflections in the water appealing

In the last days
I took comfort in love that is real,
no false comrades could ease my soul
the fall is disconcerting, you see

In the last days
glorious sunshine, illuminates my fraility
we all stumble along but life is always
flowering, you see

Reflections in the water deceiving
reflections in the water appealing

In the last days
a fox and a sparrow framed,
in the glow of a winter’s call
they don’t care they are free, the glimpse
only fleeting, fleeting yeah

Reflections in the water deceiving
Oh brothers tell me what we should do
The world it keeps on turning and turning
We’re all lost to each other it seems

We’ll lay down our guns
we’ll lay down our guns
we’ll lay down our guns
