Lyrics

Seeing eye dog on the end of its leash
says, "How can you live without trust."
it said, "Love fades like all things do
into dust into dust"

It's all been said and done
the whos and the whats and the whys
and I'm tired to the bone
of telling you goodbye

A dowsing rod trembles over the underground stream
frozen water pouring through the dark
empties through the well that was my dream
loss of faith loss of heart

It's all been said and done
the whos and the whats and the whys
and I'm tired to the bone
of always telling you goodbye
so goodbye
goodbye

The funny shoes, the banana peel, the bag of tricks
face down on a road off the map
history like a smoke that blinds and sticks
a fly caught in a fly trap

It's all been said and done
the whos and the whats and the whys
and I'm tired to the bone
of always telling you goodbye
so goodbye
goodbye
goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
