    Lyrics

    Such a sad procession
    Winding down the lane
    And what a strange impression
    Is branded on my brain

    A band was playing, endless, mindless
    It was like a hooligan's lament
    It was dumb, but it was timeless
    I still don't know what it meant

    And whatever needs to happen
    Let it happen, let it be
    Through all I am protected
    Grace is effected over me

    Behold the lights of London
    The skipper said that his hands shook
    His aura eaten by his jealously
    And all the drugs he took

    He said, "This is the real world buddy
    Toughen up your ass, or it'll break"
    I said, "I'm not your buddy, buddy
    And your real world is a fake"

    Here comes the peace campaigner
    She says the end justifies her means
    Her words so full of reason fell
    Like napalm on my dreams

    I said, "Peace is not a word, never"
    She calls me traitor, I just grin
    I said, "You've gotta live it every moment
    Or else you're just sucking wind"

    And whatever needs to happen
    Let it happen, let it be
    Through all I am protected
    Grace is effected over me

    The DJ casts his malediction
    As the wedding guests appear
    It was as cruel as any fiction
    I still carry the souvenir

    The DJ took his vengeance
    As the wedding guests arrived
    There was malice in his handshake
    Quicksand in his eyes

    As he slunk across the courtyard
    From far off I heard a horn
    Somewhere in the bleak mid-distance
    Something beautiful is born

    And whatever needs to happen
    Let it happen, let it be
    Through all I am protected
    Grace is effected over me

    I stumbled down a street of shadows
    A black alleluia split the night
    [Unverified] and priests were playing strip jack
    Underneath the cruel lamplight

    I came upon a weeping soldier
    He said, "I'm all washed up now, huh"
    But when I glanced across his shoulder
    He held a royal flush

    And whatever needs to happen
    Let it happen, let it be
    Through all I am protected
    Grace is effected over me

    I'm still here, I'm still wheeling
    I'm who I thought I was, or just about
    I'll be walking down this boulevard
    Until my legs give out

    Thoughts like storms and seas are raging
    I know it is a matter of degree
    But it's not the world outside that's changing
    It's me

    And whatever needs to happen
    Let it happen, let it be
    Through all I am protected
    Grace is effected over me

    Over me, over me
    Over me, over me
    Over me, over me
    Grace is effected over me
