lyrics

on kilimanjaro on fuji i’m waiting
come yellow dawn summer’s gone it never was staying
seems all is clear waking here above the beaches
it leaves turns with years reappears yellow as peaches

time will still ring as you bring forward your best man
all that was wrong has just gone before it began
now your display june to may you’re making me wonder
how i could stay in the shade of anything other

gone in life i have been carried all the way
taught to say if it’s only me i’ll go
i didn’t know you are a territorial
bird of prey if it’s only me i’ll stay

dipping robes into blood watching horses run
walking numb if it’s only me i’ll lie
all walk by into the war memorial
but i won’t go out of kilimanjaro
