Far beyond the things you see
Time rolls on eternally
Got a thing about it
Just can't live without it.

Sitting there inside your mind
Just waiting for the clock to chime
On a lonely line
Stood a lonely man

No pictures on an empty wall
No body there no one at all
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still.

Days line up outside the door
Thought time had stopped there was no more
Been a lonely world
Such a lonely world.

No pictures on an empty wall
No Toulouse, Vincent or Pablo
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still.

No big machine or April showers
No submarines, no plastic flowers
Just echoes in the ivory towers
When time stood still
When time stood still
When time stood still
When time stood still.
