Lyrics

I have written enough, there's enough to sing
For a song of remembering
Everything moves, everyone's laughing
Moving through the city of passing
I've written enough, enough for a while
I've written enough, enough for a while

Not everyone moves beyond the past; everything moves
But outside these photographs
Everything dies—the cycles of time
Everyone is passing, passing, passing, passing through

I remember these streets, I remember these faces
No one here ever ages
Angels from machines crowding the streets;
There must be some kind of factory where
The angels are made to just be replaced;
I've written enough, enough for today

Not everyone moves beyond the past; everything moves
But outside these photographs
Everything dies—the cycles of time
Everyone is passing, passing, passing, passing through

The angels are made to just be replaced;
I've written enough, enough for today

Not everyone moves beyond the past; everything moves
But outside these photographs
Everything dies—the cycles of time
Everyone is passing, passing, passing, passing through
