"A Matter Of Time" as written by and Tommy Siegel....
And after rearranging the furniture you slept alone
You awoke to find the war was finally done
You rubbed your eyes and squinted at the sun
Which was brighter and hotter and better lit up
The earth like a birthday cake
You were amazed you were still living
To celebrate this new beginning
Where the grass is a little greener
And the Earth is a little bigger
And the trees are a little taller
Due to air that's a little cleaner
And suddenly....

Voices rang out from the clouds
Bursting out in song
Speakers pumping loud

Keep on crying just to stop the water rising
To your brain composed of dirt
You keep on pissing to keep on drinking
You keep on eating to keep on shitting
Time will wear you down

You clap your hands inside
You were amazed that you survived
And the air that you were breathing
Gave you a supernatural feeling
And the sound of your heart beating in time
With the rhythm of your breathing
Mixed with the speed of the Earth spinning
Was precisely the same speed as earthquakes
Building beneath your feet
Awaking strangers that you need to see
The collision of a hurricane and a suicidal plane
Oh, God

It's only a matter of time [x4]

Until, suddenly...

A voice will ring out from the clouds
Bursting out in song
Speakers pumping loud

Keep on crying just to stop the water rising
To your brain composed of dirt
You keep on pissing to keep on drinking
You keep on eating to keep on shitting
Time will wear you down

It's only a matter of time
