lyrics

And they all sounds the same
All the people that are calling my name
I am too fixed on the songs that I sing
And I feel I don't have much time

I just feel helpless against the clock
Wasting away
With hours and days of talking up things that I need to do

Persistence of time is taking over my mind
I don't know why I stopped sleeping
And I'm always awake when I'm dreaming of time taking over my mind

I'm the same man, but with stronger hands
And I've broken all my ties
But these nimble hands have made me envy of my kind
Would I trade my love from the gift to compose?
Well I gave up too much to write these notes

Would I burn all of my trust?
I don't know of a single person I haven't hurt
Why should I waste my precious time?

Persistence of time is taking over my mind
I don't know why I stopped sleeping
And I'm always awake when I'm dreaming of time taking over my mind

Should I waste my time with sleep when I know that I am meant for much greater things?
Would I kill just to transcend?
I would do disgusting things to stand in the end

Persistence of time is taking over my mind
I don't know why I stopped sleeping
And I'm always awake when I'm dreaming of time taking over my mind
