Lyrics

I've been stranded here all day
Larger forces are in control
Can't bid this place goodbye
Take off and fly
The wind's hot and cold
Crude expressions
on the faces of
Everybody else and me
Cause the sun just isn't gonna shine anytime soon
It's plain to see

Watchin headline news
Sociopaths and fools on parade
Of course we all will be
paying for the mess they've made

There's more dumb business in the newspapers
And magazines on the shelves
And outside the wind is bearing down
All I can do is tell myself

That eventually
Eventually
Today will be
A faded memory
I've gotta let time do
what it will
Till this ill wind
Is coming still
The storm will cease to be
Eventually
Eventually

Now my best laid plans
Are crumpled up and thrown away
Of course I know that I
Wanna live to try another day

It seems like lately life is racing by
I don't wanna fall behind
Now I'm stuck here staring at the clock
Trying like hell to keep in mind

That eventually
Eventually
Today will be
A faded memory
I've gotta let time do
what it will
Till this ill wind
Is coming still
The storm will cease to be
Eventually
Eventually
