Lyrics for Millions by XTC :
[Verse 1]
We smelled your soup on the fire cooking
We saw your toys and your pencils looking bright
So bright and yet they come from, oh, so far away

[Verse 2]
We heard your flags and your banners flapping
We felt the air from your hands, all clapping time
In time, I’m sure your time is not so far away

[Chorus]
Millions, all moving forward
Millions, all babbling crossword
Millions, all flow as water
Millions, all bright with laughter

He make you glowing
He bake you golden
Like the Yangtze mud

[Verse 3]
I saw your writing on paper landing
Your stamps showed bridges and temples standing still
So still, and yet they’re standing, oh, so far away

[Verse 4]
I saw you asking for Western thinking
I say it’s poison that you’ll be drinking
Stay as east, as far away as dreams will let you be

[Chorus]
Millions, all moving forward
Millions, all babbling crossword
Millions, all flow as water
Millions, all bright with laughter

He make you glowing
He bake you golden
Like the Yangtze mud

[Instrumental break]

[Chorus]
Millions, all moving forward
Millions, all babbling crossword
Millions, all flow as water
Millions, all bright with laughter

He make you glowing
He bake you golden
Like the Yangtze mud

[Instrumental outro]
