Lyrics of All This Time

I looked out across
The river today
I saw a city in the fog and an old church tower where the seagulls play
I saw the sad shire horses walking home in the sodium light
Two priests on the ferry
October geese on a cold winter's night
All this time
The river flowed endlessly
To the sea
Two priests came round our house tonight
One young one old offer prayers for the dying to serve the final rite
One to learn one to teach which way the cold wind blows?
Fussing and flapping in priestly black like a murder of crows
All this time the river flowed
Endlessly to the sea
If I had my way take a boat from the river
And I'd bury the old man
I'd bury him at sea
Blessed are the poor for they shall inherit the earth
Better to be poor than be a fat man in the eye of a needle
As these words were spoken I swear
I hear the old man laughing
What good is a used up world and how could it be worth having?
All this time the river flowed endlessly
Like a silent tear all this time
The river flowed father if Jesus exists
Then how come he never lived here
Yeah yeah hey yeah yeah hey yeah yeah hey
Teachers told us
The Romans built this place they built a wall and a temple
An edge of the empire
Garrison town
They lived and they died they prayed to their gods
But the stone gods did not make a sound
And their empire crumbled 'till all that was left
Were the stones the workmen found
All this time the river flowed
In the falling light of a northern sun
If I had my way take a boat from the river
Men go crazy in congregations
They only get better one by one
One by one
One by one by one one by one
I looked out across the river today
I saw a city in the fog and an old church tower where the seagulls play
I saw the sad shire horses walking home in the sodium light
Two priests on the ferry
October geese on a cold winter's night
