already yesterday lyrics – church

it’s already yesterday
we’re off the calendar
i heard the sirens play
just like an orchestra
mechanical bird of prey
sing for your emperor
last broken flash of love
still in the camera

we don’t feel those locks and chains
we won’t listen to the lizard part of our brains
giving the orders
another morning we’ll be gone
i start the car for ten mile beach
or maybe avalon
across the water

it’s already yesterday
and n*body’s answering
disconnected, drift away
n*body’s questioning
head of silver, feet of clay
who is surrendering
they fall in our heyday
i am remembering

we can’t feel those aches and pains
we won’t listen to the voices in the city rain
giving the orders
another morning i’ll be gone
i start the car for violet town
and then to babylon
over the border
