I watch the slow hand kill the day
I see my starring role tick away
I watch the skyline for him to come
And when he comes along we'll be gone

And we'll go into the city into the light
We'll be there in the headlines there overnight
Cause this is the big time, this is the way
Now he's in the big time he'll show you the way.

This is the big time this is the way
Now he's in the big time
And you're in the way

    General CommentI think Brett is playing with parallel of his success and the Jesus coming... very impressive song with apocalyptical feeling ("and when he comes along, we´ll be gone" but also the atmosphere of a dying day in early evening); in the end of the song I hear no "big time" but "pig time" - it would fit to "piggy" single Animal nitrate ("pig" is in Painted people too)
