How’s this for an opening line:
I’m out of time and frankly so are all of us.


How’s this for an opening line:
I’m out of time and frankly so are all of us
The clowns and the emperors with treasure chests
Parading in their birthday suits

Tumbling from the peak from the top of the mountain
Just an avalanche of rolling dice
A lemming with a crown falling down
You wouldn’t think you’d do the same thing too

Curtains open wide open eyed
And signing up for over time
The sand in the glass
Rushes past and rises up above your Sunday shoes

How’s it get so late please state just for my records
How the time escapes from all of us
My stock rising higher
When my confidence was ebbing at an all-time low

Clouds wide and vast grinding past the axis of this world
It spins too fast for me
The trees filled with stars
While the apples float like leaves until they’re blown away

Thrown away like coins to the bottom of the wishing well
From clowns like I
But clowns have the luxury of laughing
While they’re falling from an empty sky
