lyrics

I saw my future in a flash of a thought
I saw my future, when I blinked it was gone

I watched in the mirror as it came to me
Then got distracted and it slipped my mind immediately
I watched the clock cross hands
And how it kept my attention
Reversed in reflection

Was it too old to care or too young to be careful?
I grin and bear through the prayers but never tire of the riddles
Was it too lost to be profound?
Or too found to lose out now?
I am wrapped in the rhythm

I saw my future in a flash of a thought
I saw my future, I know I say that a lot
I was starved, I was parched, I was delirious and wandering
I was starved, I was parched, I might have almost made the promised land
But to be honest, I’d moved on by then

See, I’m working on wings, I’m gonna fly to the sun
Cause what that first guy got wrong’s he didn’t plan far enough
He only thought of the rise, he didn’t think of the fall
He was half there, but I’ve got the rest of it solved
You’ve gotta focus on ending the second you start
So in a smoldering nosedive, there’s peace in your heart
So when you smash into the earth, you did it on your terms
That’s living the dream

Was it too old to care or too young to be careful?
I grin and bear through prayers but never tire of the riddles
Was it too lost to be profound?
Or too found to lose out now?
I was wrapped in the rhythm
But I’m scrapping the system
