Lyrics Print

People don't wait an eternity
They're lucky if they get to wait a lifetime
Don't get attached to amenities
Something always takes them away

Oh echo echo away

People don't try to make it easier
They're only trying to get through it themselves
What if you got hit by a meteorite
The rest of us recover some day

Oh echo echo away

Can we fly the height of Avalon
Can I fight the high of babblin' on

Keep away from eternity
It's not contingent on your lifetime
It will surely come eventually
But it'll always be forever away

Oh echo echo away

Keep your distance from the needier
Those folks must learn to fend for themselves
Your meals should always be the meatier
The rest of us'll uncover some way

Oh echo echo away

Can we fly the height of Avalon
Can I fight the high of babblin' on

Dying is for an eternity
That's not exactly the discovery of a lifetime
But it's at the root of insanity
And of the reality it outweighs

Oh echo echo away

Dying for me is getting speedier
Not that I control that myself
I try not to repeat things so familiar
But people like to chime in to say

Oh echo echo away

Can we fly the height of Avalon
Can I fight the high of babblin' on
Can I fight the high of babblin' on
