witness lyrics – electric light orchestra

i saw an ant devour sherman mountain.
slip across the floor in the river of honey.
i saw the locust drinking from a fountain.
it smiled at me as i paid my money.

chorus
caus’ i’m a witness, witness, see the writing on the wall.
i’m a witness, witness, i say i’ve seen it all.
caus’ i’m a witness, witness, i’ve got all the proof.
i’m a witness, witness, i swear to tell the truth.

i saw her buying in the face of fashion.
who’ll believe with her little white lies.
i saw her arrive on my bed of p*ssion.
but i never saw a look of love in her eyes.

chorus

some days my eyes can see for miles and miles around.
some nights my dreams just take me deep underground.
my minds a time machine, i’m in the future and the past.
the past… scr*pe away…

(violin solo)

chorus

chorus

witness, witness, witness
witness, witness, witness
witness, witness, witness
witness, witness, witness
