I hear it in your silence,
When you don't speak
Well what's funny then,
Isn't funny anymore.

I can hear it in your voice,
There's always a catch
We're going nowhere,
And we're going there fast.

Anything to watch
While we are waiting
For this apocalypse?
What more is there to do?

It's nice to be important
But so close to being despised
It's more important to be nice
I guess than being wise

I'll take you shopping
I take you dancing too
I take you out
All the thing you wanna do
And I'll give you diamonds
And I'll give you space
So be with anyone you want
It's alright with me.

Oh time is over
Don't you know that
If a time won't
Pause or burn
I'll stay right in my place
Now worry's over!

I hear it in your silence,
When you don't speak
There is a quiet, cryin' rage
Burning inside you, so deep.

I'd give you anything
But I'd give you problems
So be with anyone you want
It's alright with me.

I hear it in your voice
I see it in your lips
There's always a catch
I guess that's alright with me

When no one's around
'Cause the map says you're here
Now I can hear a loneliness
Screaming in my ear.

Oh, time is over
Don't you know that
If a time won't pause or burn
I stay right in my place
The war ain't over yet
This war ain't over yet

Being nice is only hard when others aren't
Our time is over
