William Basinski - A Shadow In Time

David Bowie

Time - He's waiting in the wings
He speaks of senseless things
His scripts is you and me, boys
Time - He flexes like a whore
Falls wanking to the floor
His trick is you and me, boys
Time - In quaaludes and red wine
Demanding Billy Dolls
And other friends of mine
Take your time
The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain
Incestuous and vain
And many other last names
Oh well, I look at my watch
It says 9:25 and I think
'Oh God, I'm still alive'

We should be on by now
We should be on by now

You - Are not a victim
You - Just scream with boredom
You - Are not evicting time

Chimes - Goddamn you're looking old
You'll freeze and catch a cold
'Cause you left your coat behind
Take your time
Breaking up is hard
But keeping dark is hateful
I had so many dreams
I had so many breakthroughs
But you, my love, were kind
But love has left you dreamless
The door to dreams was closed
Your park was real greenless
Perhaps you're smiling now
Smiling through this darkness
But all I have to give
Is guilt for dreaming.

We should be on by now
We should be on by now.
