song title:Going Down Slow
date: 1994-00-00
lyrics: 

Chorus:
Ten thousand oceans and ten thousand seas
Ten leagues to cross to find fate there for me
I'm in no hurry to round that last bend in the road
Takin' my time and I'm going down slow

Bridge:
The priest and the magician both spinning tales
for one the magic's real, for one religion fails
A man who works with his hands knows the feel of the land
I try to get by but i don't understand
The soul and the believer claim rights to the dawn
the sun and the maroon and the beef and the brawn
The priest and the magician both duping the crowd
And the music plays fast and the magic's allowed

taking my time and i'm going down slow
