Woken by a whale song, by a siren blast
All those deep sea divers of Brooklyn, the phantom buses swimming past
When the morning is rolled out onto the set
I see two crows sharing a cigarette
While they're waiting for the catering truck parked outside of yesterday's news
For the starlet, for the stuntman, for some sign of a camera crew

Then I swear I overhear somebody say
"Well the sky in here looks so blue today
I could drop all my lines, I could throw my ropes into the water
I could change my mind now today looks the same as tomorrow
If I could kill only the time that truly deserves to die,
then so will I..."

I see jet streams, trails of small-talk, phosphorescence on an ocean of air
And I move slowly along the bottom, past old folks in their folding chairs
Then Yolanda asks if I got any change?
Well that's exactly what he, what she said yesterday
And I gave her all I had in my pockets just 'cause she's a real swell guy
And she never ever breaks character, crashes my scenes or steals my lines

And I swear if her pretty red toenails could speak they'd say
"There's no one else worth pretending to be
I could drop all my lines, I could throw my ropes into the water
Oh I could change my mind when today looks the same tomorrow
Oh I could kill all of the time that truly deserves to die
If I could kill only the time that truly deserves to die
Oh when I've killed only the time that truly deserves to die,
then so will I.."
