wind up your reasons, demons and ghosts
wind up your circuitry, loves you the most
your wings on fire, but you can't find them
your wings are higher, i've never seen them before

chasing the wings of steel
chasing the ghost of time

wind up your circuitry, loves you the most
wind up your complicated chasing the ghost
your wings are tired, you cannot get there from here
where you aspire, you cannot fly there from here

chasing the wings of steel
chasing the ghost of time
chasing the taste of life
chasing the ghost of time

chasing the wings of steel
chasing the ghost of time
chasing the taste of life
chasing the ghost of time

i've come so near, yet so far

in the river of darkness there's a light
in the river of darkness there's a light

wind up your consequence, feeling paralyzed

chasing the wings of steel
chasing the ghost of time
chasing the taste of life
chasing the ghost of time

i walk in the light
i walk in the night

    General CommentMy interpretation is that this is about leaving things too long.

    For example, having aspirations to do well in life etc, then not following (or "chasing") them until its too late ("Chasing the ghost").

    The wings are the means of transport to reach your goals, hence you need wings of 'steel' in order to be strong and achieve them. However, if your wings are "on fire" or "tired", it means you "Cant get there from here".

    The idea of "Chasing the ghost of time" is that you can never catch time, hence its a ghost (intangible).
