Time will swallow
Like magic create the future
Who put the daggers in those eyes?
Through dark days of struggle?
To burst all our bubbles?
Well the cynical flame will it heat, stick and blister?
Evangelistic brother
Go wash your hands and fingers
Was it your fate
Time and decay
Thunder and rain
Will it heat stick and blister?
Still try to resist the pessimist
And these things I find
Where time lasts forever
Think I'm all mankind
With your Catholic taste
We do not relate
Mr Pessimister
