lyrics

We don’t feel
We don’t feel it as it passes by
Innocent point in time
So goes our entire lives
Seconds, minutes, hours, days
In the worthless pursuit of a day’s wage

Whenever, whenever I close my eyes
The wheel accelerates
If I change my frame of mind and buy some time
Open your eyes

I’m reaching for this moment
For this moment
Frozen in the flow
Where one could say a life achieved
Like our fathers had known
Had never known

Had fucking never known, never known

As it comes back into focus I realize
Each falling grain of sand
Carries a terrible precious weight
Falling faster from my hands

I wish we’d noticed sooner
That the world was starting to spin faster
That our time had been getting shorter
That we were placed in a race without the grace to get a fucking shot

I’m reaching for this moment
For this moment
Frozen in the flow
Where one could say a life achieved
Like our fathers had known

Now I’m gunna push back

I’m going to strangle every second
Going to strangle every hour, every day, and say:
We made our way with our own two hands
We’ll never waste our time again
