I was walking for hours, didn't seem to be getting anywhere
Then I was pacing 'round my room like a caged-up circus bear
Then I was walking down the road with a thousand-yard stare in my head
Now I'm sitting in line with the paupers and the millionaires
My begging bowl ready to get my share
And I can't quite work out if I'm alive or if I'm dead

And all the posts kept moving as we got older
And all the cash I saved so hard got spent
And all the days I pissed away are over
And I can't remember where they went

Now the young ones move forward 'cause you didn't do anything
And the old at the back are getting folding chairs
And the ones in the middle with me spread out blankets and sit on the ground
And their words played out before us like pieces of a jigsaw
I see people down there acting like there's nothing to fear
As loud as I shout to them, I can't seem to get myself heard

And all the lust that burned so hot got colder
And all the rules that didn't break got bent
And all the days I pissed away are over
And I can't remember where they went

Won't somebody tell me
Where did all the time go?
Won't somebody tell me
Where did all the time go?

Now the line's moving slowly so I take a little wander
The lady from the car crash can keep my place
So I'm walking down the road with a thousand-yard stare in my head
Well, it wasn't hard to find you, your routine changes rarely
You plod with good intentions through time and space
But I've seen the line dividing, one left, one right, in peculiar paths

And all the things I ever held important
Are now the things I hold most in contempt
But all the time I could call mine is over
And I can't remember where it went

Won't somebody tell me
Where did all the time go?
Won't somebody tell me
Where did all the time go?
