The Captain and the Hourglass - Laura Marling

You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the car.
You sat alone under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me,
Well I fell into the water, now I'm free.

My friends they don't really get me,
think I'm the only one
Well i sold my soul to Jesus and since then ive 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 wind and I, we speak the same, but he don't hear so well.
You're gonna have to curse him,
Well you're gonna have to yell.
The sky and I, we've had our fights and I'm coming round to rain,
If the rain come round and it don't come out, then I'll never have to speak again,
I can tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
Can tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

The captains got his boots on and he's heading out the door,
Leaving his lady alone thinkin' "He don't love me no more."
He's done with all this bullsh_t,
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 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.

You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the car.
You sat alone under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me,
Well I fell into the water, now I'm free...
