Lyrics

Time - He's waiting in the wings
       He speaks of senseless things
       His script is you and me boys

Time - He flexes like a whore
       Falls wanking to the floor
       His trick is you and me, boy

Time - In Quaaludes and red wine
       Demanding Billy Dolls
       And other friends of mine
       Take your time

The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain
Incestuous and vain, and many other last names
I look at my watch it say 9:25 and I think "Oh God I'm still alive"

We should be on by now
We should be on by now

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat)

You - are not a victim
You - just scream with boredom
You - are not evicting time

Chimes - Goddamn, you're looking old
         You'll freeze and catch a cold
         'Cause you've left your coat behind
         Take your time

Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful
I had so many dreams, I had so many breakthroughs
But you, my love, were kind, but love has left you dreamless
The door to dreams was closed.  Your park was real dreamless
Perhaps you're smiling now, smiling through this darkness
But all I had to give was the guilt for dreaming

We should be on by now (x5)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat)

Yeah, time!
