"Chronophobia" as written by and Brett Gurewitz Greg Graffin....
These rational delusions have got to cease
The second hand has finally got the best of me
I'm too aware about the singularity
That brought me to the edge of time
And it's always on my mind now

They say what has passed is coming back some day
The world is turning faster but it's just one way
And I'm desperate to try most anything to abate

A simple Chronophobia
A simple Chronophobia now
A simple Chronophobia
A simple Chronophobia now

Maybe there's a science or technology
To help me come to terms with my maker
Since natural selection never banked on me
I must be an exception to the plan

Someone help me understand now
Cryogenic methods are intractable
And collagen polymers aren't so terrible
But they still can't prevent the inevitable farewell

A simple Chronophobia
A simple Chronophobia now
A simple Chronophobia
A simple Chronophobia now

    General CommentI think this song is about how people are afraid to accept the future and that they would rather live present and future life as the past, although what happened in the past may very well be a starting area for what the future will be like (the great depression of 1929 and now we are about to hit another great depression, or a huge war like WW2 and now we are fighting a never ending war in Iraq). People are afraid of the future, but the future is a reoccurance of the past.

    General CommentIs it not obvious that its about how we are taught to fear the aging process because it is profitable to big corporations that we refuse to accept our mortality?
