Wait
I'll be swifter
Than the speed of light
Carbon all my body
A billion years of time

You wake
With the stitches
Over both your eyes
And deny me, my body
And all earthly delights

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of
Time and light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of

All of your praying
Amount to just one breath
Please keep your victory
But give me little death

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of
Time and light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of
Time and light
I guess you are afraid of
What everyone is made of
What everyone is made of

So take to the streets
With apocalypse refrain
Your devotion has the look of
A lunatic's gaze
