Out Of Time And Mind

You walk down the street in your fancy suit
With diamonds and gold to show off your fruit
When riches and fame are your primary goals
You give up your soul at the crossing roads

They say beyond here is nothin' to find
Come, let us walk out of time and mind.

When the night is done at the break of dawn
The serpent hides beneath the lawn
The rooster crows and cracks his whip
Racing his chariot for a soul bound trip

They say beyond here is nothin' to find
Come, let us ride out of time and mind

The ship is ready, the sails are all set
And nothin' been said or done to regret
My baby once gave me an apple to eat
Since then her spirit makes my heart to beat

They say beyond here is nothin' to find
Come, let us sail out of time and mind

Your style is one I am getting very used to liking. So smooth and flowing. Good message too. The repetition of the one phrase to prove each point is very effective. I enjoyed this.
