about

This song was inspired by sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, who works outdoors with natural, found materials (flowers, leaves, rocks, twigs, ice, snow, etc.).

lyrics

Mark a circle, to dig a hole
Hold the ice until it fuses
Fingertips turned white from cold

Wait for the sun, to bless its skin
Watch it glimmer for a while
Then rush on toward its own end

As bit by bit the work you shaped by pieces
Slumps, and falters in decline
And you’re reminded that the river
Is more than just the water
It’s the time, it’s the time, it’s the time

The crack of rock, a solid sound
Satisfying once you’ve learned
Bracken grows darker underground

Ignore the tear, of thorn through skin
You know it’s all just temporary
Know it’s all just temporary

All the bending shaping, pinning, curling
Force, of thought and world aligned
Just to remind you that the river
Is more than just the water
It’s the time, it’s the time, it’s the time
