Lyrics

Fingertips sun at sideshow stalls,
They throw the balls
At coconut furs that hide behind coloured shades that blind your eyes
Every child's mother holds an ice cream cone, they circle round
Perceived unknown by an eye that peers
From a hole in a tent where no one goes
A figure sitting cross-legged on the floor
He's clogged and clothed in saffran robes, his beads are all he owns
Slow down, slow down
Someone must have said let's slow him down
Slow down, slow down
It's pictured on the arms of the karma man
Fairy tale skin depicting scenes form human zoos
Impermanent toys like peace and war,
A gentle face you've seen before
Karma man tattooed on your side, the wheel of life
I see my times and who I've been,
I only live now and I don't know why
I struggle hard to take these pictures in, but
All my friends can see is just the pinkness of his skin
Slow down, slow down
Someone must have said let's slow him down
Slow down, slow down
It's pictured on the arms of the karma man.
