This hole is shrinking and the air's getting tight
It's time to bust and set fire to the night.
Her life's been pilfered and you know that ain't right
and we've got many miles to go.

The sandstorm in my hourglass
The time that's passed ain't had too much to show.
Slow and steady don't necessarily win the race.

Delirium tremendous, when will you send us
all those extra days you promised you would lend us?

They're marching eight by eight down January Street,
a plague of locusts that devour concrete.
They got their chains and bats and guns that repeat,
and they've got many miles to go.

A sandstorm in my hourglass,
the time that's passed ain't had too much to show.
Slow and steady don't necessarily win the race

Delirium tremendous, when will you send us
all those extra days you promised you would lend us?

A murmur from the crowd said the end is nigh,
We hesitated now there ain't no more pie.
Born yesterday and yet tomorrow we'll die,
but we've got many miles to go.

The turns take forever while the years just fly on by,
hangovers hang over my head.
Slow and steady don't necessarily win the race.

Delirium tremendous, when will you send us
all those extra days you promised you would lend us?
Delirium tremendous, you can't break or bend us
'cause we will get together before we all run, run out, out of time.
