Repeat this thoughtless rhyme
As the sun burns through the night
Like a whole day without time
What is time? What is time?

The river’s run its course
But it can’t make it out to sea
While the salmon fight the current
To return where they used to be

Seconds turn to minutes turn to hours turn to days
All the words that we spoke chase us through the maze
Days turn to months turn to years or so it seems
All the things we left unsaid haunt us in our dreams

The mime cannot escape
From the box that he has made
Time always ticks the same
Who’s to blame? Who is to blame?

The wave is at its peak
Still higher, it wants to be
The shark can taste the blood
But it’s just not time to feed

So we try and turn the page
But the letters don’t make words
Heads held high we try again
But it just gets more absurd
Maybe it’s time we close the book
And put it on the shelf
Shuffle up a deck of cards
See what hand is dealt
