lyrics

Time in the Tin
Summer was discovery
now the slightest wind chills me
and I’ve set nothing aside
I’ve only scattered thoughts to hide

From quicker clock face hands
From rain that turns it all to sand
A bit more life is in the can
With hands outstretched we try to cram

Every last taste and scent and breath
That rings of life but every pledge
Holds its promise and the line
Towards home is hard to find

30 seconds is a lifetime on tv, and this is what I’d say if I had your attention
Please don’t spend the hours staring at the distant shrines in shopping malls
The speechless saints in magazines and city walls

See the billboards on the street
Take us all for imbeciles
Lay their promise at our feet
But it’s always out of reach

With our minds thus occupied
We didn’t see our hands get tied
They seduce us and deride
Us, and we forfeit all our pride.

Who dares tell you good enough
Means buying into all this stuff
While the thoughts inside your head
Are dismissed, remain unsaid.

30 seconds is a lifetime on tv, and this is what I'd say if I had your attention
Please don’t spend the hours staring at the distant shrines in shopping malls
The speechless saints in magazines and city walls
