INDIGO DRUMS

I get a feeling that's not quite clear
I start to move to the beat I hear
straight to the heart of my deepest fear
indigo drums indigo drums

I see a light that's much too bright
I face a dark deeper than the night
I try to speak but I'm mute with fright
indigo drums indigo drums

Soothe me with a wave of love
is this real time
or what's to come
can I change or is it written in blood
is there enough time
is there enough love

I choke on the dust of a deadly beast
when love is spent so thoughtlessly
so much trust becomes so much debris
nothing is spared nothing is spared

I see my brothers and my sisters fall
I see my children that hurts worst of all
we walked so proud but now we fall
stripped to the bone
all hope is gone

Soothe me with a wave of love
is this real time or what's to come
can I change or is it written in blood
is there enough time
is there enough love

ah ma tah teh
la ka ha heh
so the old ones say
it's the giveaway
with a second chance
we could learn the dance
see the gift of life
with our open eyes

I get a feeling that's all too clear
I start to move to the beat I hear
