Precious Little Time

“Inspired by the absurd notion that we can actually possess time and are somehow entitled to X amount of it.”

– From the liner notes of Angels, Bones & Clocks

Twenty years where the minutes crawl
And the days fly by.
Twenty years isn’t nothin’ at all
In the all-knowing eye.
The absurdity is just so sublime,
I run red lights, just
To stand in line, Just to save
Myself some precious little time.

Chorus:
I can’t save my life.
Spend it by the nickel and the dime.
No I can’t save my life like that,
The lazy days just growing fat,
From feeding on my precious little time.
From feeding on my precious little time.

Show some faith, there’s a smile
On the face of the millennium.
Show some grace,
Just might change the pace of the days to come.
When you measure all your time in a line,
The unbroken circle seems unkind,
When you wave goodbye to your precious
Little time.

repeat chorus

The absurdity is just so sublime,
I run red lights, just
To stand in line, just to save
Myself some precious little time.

repeat chorus

 

“Precious Little Time” appears on Angels, Bones & Clocks.
