I'm sure your time is not so far away 

Millions, all moving forward 
Millions, all babbling crossword 
Millions, all flow as water 
Millions, all bright with laughter 
He make you glowing 
He bake you golden like the Yangtse mud 

I saw your writing on paper landing

So still
And yet they're standing oh, so far away 

I, I, I, I, I saw you asking for western thinking 
I say it's poison that you'll be drinking 
Stay as East
As far away as dreams will let you be

Millions, all moving forward 
Millions, all babbling crossword 
Millions, all flow as water 
Millions, all bright with laughter 
He make you glowing 
He bake you golden like the Yangtse mud 

Millions, all moving forward 
Millions, all babbling crossword 
Millions, all flow as water 
Millions, all bright with laughter 
He make you glowing 
He bake you golden like the Yangtse mud
