When I was 15 or 16 I took a class called Intro to Lyrical Poetry, which was to mean sung lyrics (rock/folk), in which we had to pick one song to bring in for the class and I picked this one. The lyrics were not on the album sleeve so I had to guess them and no one could decipher the last line: I substituted "a billion grains of sand with its hand in the ground fifty million years ago" for what this Youtuber decided was "and there were pendulums and sand and Coors cans in the ground fifty million years ago." The lyrics have to my knowledge never been officially published on the page.
