Did you know that time passes with a smile and sneer
Can you hear the calendar scream as you X out the days
Time spent
Chasing the tail of tomorrow
And today

Step up to the plate
Throw down your hope
Face your fate
And ponder it between the index and the ring

If your hope runs dry
Then there's nothing left to push for
Throw in the towel and take that next step
Laugh your way into the future
And make sure she see it

Step up to the plate
Throw down your hope
Face your fate
And ponder it between the index and the ring

Thats when I sign my check for fuck you dollars
With a memo: please leave
Thats when I sign my check for fuck you dollars
With a memo: please leave

And I'll seal it in an envelope with a burning rose

The clock dies at 5:16
5:16
