THE MOMENT

 

From the moment that we're born we start dying

From the moment that we're born we start to fade

And there is very little use in denying

For living, dying is the price we pay

 

From the moment that we breathe our very first breath

We are one breath closer to our fate

Though it takes a while for us to understand it

From the moment that we're born it's much too late

 

From that moment that we're born we start lying

From that moment that we're born we start to say

That there is no need in anyone a dying

We can save that for another day

 

From that very first moment to our very last

We try to deny and try to get on past

The life we've been dying to give away

Is truly going to be takin' back someday

 

Watch the shadows, watch the dark

Watch your thoughts and watch your heart

Look out for the evil one, the clever one, the fool

Look out for the world that can be cruel

 

From that moment that we're born we start lying

From that moment that we're born we start to say

That there is no need in anyone a dying

We can save that for another day

 

From that moment that death reaches out to us

From that moment that he starts his simple plans

We know not from where the dagger will be thrust

We can die or live on another strand

 

From that moment that we're born we start lying

From that moment that we're born we start to say

That there is no need in anyone a dying

We can save that for another day

We can save that for another day

 

Watch the shadows, watch the dark

Watch your thoughts, watch your heart

The evil one, the clever one, the fool

And the world that can be cruel

Yeah the world that can be cruel
