Pete Townshend - Outlive the Dinosaur Lyrics




Send Outlive the Dinosaur Ringtone to your Cell

I breathe
My throat clenches
Clutching to exclude
A dozen different stenches

In Falmouth Bay
A blue whale rolls
Gonna drown in the swill
From city sewer holes

Summer's longer
Deltas gashed
Ancient trees
Uprooted, smashed

Time is generous, more, take more
Time is generous, more, take more
Time is generous, more, take more
I must outrun the dinosaur

As to your question about how this will affect your career
The great artist is just like a child
And intuitively understands the need to submit to the audience
Do you begin to see the secret?

A silent temple
Marble-hard
Decays and softens
Battle-scarred

A relic deaf
To bits and streams
And polo-necks
And perfect jeans

Obsessed with silence
Spiked by noise
I hold my son
I plan his toys

Time expansive, more, take more
Time expansive, more, take more
Time expansive, more, take more
I must outlive the dinosaur

Lastly, you must be prepared to test yourself
Why not try the song I have enclosed?
It's an outtake from a secret project I'm working on called
"Gridlife"
The tape you sent shows you can sing, so sing

Rising rivers
Drown new shoots
Words and breath
In death cahoots

The strong survive
To wean more brutes
Who grow and seed
Extend their roots

Cowards, bombs
And scab recruits
Like monkeys trapped
In monkey suits

Time is plentiful, more, take more
Time is plentiful, more, take more
Time is plentiful, more, take more
I must outfight the dinosaur

Time is plentiful, more, take more
(Take some more)
Time is plentiful, more, take more
(There's plenty more)
Time is plentiful, more, take more
(Just take some more)
Time is plentiful, more, take more

Time is plentiful, more, take more
(Ah, take)
Time is plentiful, more, take more
(Take some more)
Time is plentiful, more, take more
More take more, more take more

Take more
Take more
More
More
