Well, I don't know who invented the clock
But it began a process that will never stop
At the age of six or seven or so
It was a decoration that went tick-tock
Then by ten they invented the watch
Portable guidance till the hands fell off
And a few years later it was luminous hands
Then digital figures to help you understand

Conditioned by punctuality
Knew when to be there, but not where to be

We thought we could control the time
By always knowing what it was
Now every action has a certain speed
As we let time control us

Every technological step
Is faster than the one before
Watching the neighbours and the fashion shows
To see if we need to know more

Desparate to be one step ahead
Loving to be followed, but still needing to be led

So keep up the pace and keep in line
You're either in the race or you're left behind
You may feel part of society but the truth is more sublime
I said "Stop! Take a look around you"
But you never had the time
But you never had the time
But you never had the time
