The Captain And The Hourglass

Laura Marling

You kicked the blow,
now you've got to kick the guy.
You sat alone under bellowing sky
If I feel God judging me,
I fell into the water,
now I'm free.

My friends don't really get me,
think I'm the only one
Well i sold my soul to Jesus
and since then i've had no fun
Behind every tree is a cutting machine and a kite fallen from grace
Inside every man is a heart of sand you can see it in his face.

He'll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
He'll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

The smoke is filling up the room, creeping up the walls
But it's my only pleasure as I don't drink no more.
And I told him he could stray but he was not to fall in love
So I could be the snake and still look like a dove.

Cause I am one for straying and not one for forgiving,
And if he thinks we're all right then I can go on living.

You kicked the blow, now you've got to kick the guy.
You sat alone, under bellowing sky.
If I feel God judging me, I fell into the water,
And now I'm free.

The wind and I we speak the same but he don't hear so well,
If you gonna have to curse him well you're gonna have to yell.
And the sky and I we've had our fights but I'm coming round to rain,
If the rain come out and I don't go out I don't ever have to speak again.

I can tick tick tick tick away,
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
I can tick tick tick tick away,
Another second lost with every fallen grain

The captain's got his boots on and he's heading out the door,
Leaving his lady alone thinking, "He don't love me no more."
He's done with all his bullshit, he's going back to war,
If heaven is as heaven does then this is hell for sure

And he'll tick tick tick tick away,
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
And he'll tick, tick tick tick away,
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

You kicked the blow, now you've got to kick the guy.
You sat alone, under bellowing sky.
If I feel God judging me, I fell into the water,
And now I'm free.
