If you hide; the kid inside
The more you live; the more he dies
That's the cost of livin
Always taking, never giving

Give up things, that won't come back
'Coz what you lost was all you had..
I look around to see
Is there anyone like me?

I'll close my eyes and try to understand
All there's left of my rock's a grain of sand..

Time swallows sand
And year swallows year
Time swallows time
And all the time it disappears
Time swallows time

Float around, stay low and wait
I close my mouth around the bait
Pull it when you're able
I'm a goldfish on a table

Believing things that isn't true
There's a kid inside of you
And you don't hear him crying
But slowly he's dying...

I'll close my eyes and try to understand
All there's left of my rock's a grain of sand

Time swallows time
And year swallows year
Time swallows time
And all the time it disappears
Time swallows time
And year swallows year
- I guess it does; it's this time a year

All the time just disappears
I guess it does; it's this time a year
Time swallows time
And down the throat next year slips
Time swallow time
And year licks it's lips
