The Dying Rays

This song is by Gang of Four, features Herbert Grönemeyer and appears on the album What Happens Next (2015).

Stop the seconds flow
Oh, I'm too late
I'm back where I began at the start
I'm caught in the wake
I'll have my due and drag the rock up the hill
Nothing to lose that's not been lost
I wish the sun anchored still

What I wanted disappears in the haze
A speck of dust held forever in the dying rays

Breath on the mirror; nothing inside
The horizon's bare, but in the night, I miss the pilot's light

Control and power, empires were built in our minds
But it will all go up in a blaze; only dust in the dying rays
