(Verse 1)
Traffickers in tragedies
Assault our eyes and ears
With words disguised as weapons
Speaking lies we long to hear
They make such distant memories seem so clear
Still time keeps marching on
And ours draws near

(Verse 2)
Poets juggling paradigms
Regale us with their prose
As twisted tellers of tall tales
Assail us with those
How can such contradictions persevere?
While time keeps marching on
And ours draws near

(Verse 3)
So I went up to the mountain top
Just to look down from its peak
It seemed the farther up I climbed
The harder it became to speak
It was like talking to your own reflection in the mirror
'Cause time keeps marching on
And ours draws near

(Instrumental)

(Verse 4)
Please remind me when we reach the end
Of this road we're travelling down
I'd sure hate to have to do it all again
Because I'd somehow gotten turned around
Besides I might have gained a whole new career
Watching time keep marching on
And ours draw near
'Cause time keeps marching on
And ours draws near
