You Can Escape From Time

lyrics

Yes, you’re gonna – yes, you’re gonna go on. Sing another song.

You’ve got 1600 miles and you’ll go on. You’ve got 17 hours to get there and you’ll go on.

You know you know you can’t stop time, but maybe you should give it a try.
You know you are not a black hole or a collapsed star. You know you know you should still go!

You are not really moving; the world is really moving.
You get pulled along with it unless you’re really with it.
And, if you jump up high, you can escape from time.
Under your feet it’s spinning – the world is really driven.
Finish everything you try all at once and the same time.
You can escape from places; you can escape from spaces;
you can escape from races: places, spaces, races, places, spaces, races…

You are a busy woman. You’ve got no time.
You are a smart woman. You can stop the time.
The whole world revolves around you. The whole world revolves around you.
You are a big man. You’ve got your own gravity.
You are the sun and you’re in your social system.
The whole world revolves around you. Everybody matters, but what matters surrounds you.
You are a superstar, you’ll go far.
You are a superstar.

Yes, you’re gonna – yes, you’re gonna go on.
Say, you’ve got it going on.

You are not really moving; the world is really moving.
You get pulled along with it unless you’re really driven.
And, if you jump up high, you can escape from time.
Under your feet it’s spinning – the world is really with it.
Finish everything you try all at once and the same time.
You can escape from places; you can escape from spaces;
you can escape from races: places, spaces, races, places, spaces, races…
