lyrics

If time is money (and money's overrated), what's that mean for me and my kind?
When you walked in with your hair newly-parted, you didn't know what you started but you outsmarted my mind.

I'm stuck between your world and mine and I angle back and forth. I never wanted to be that guy, but I don't know what that's worth. I wish that time was on my side.

If time is relative and mine are old-fashioned, does that mean that my future is doomed to rely on the past?
I'm picking up new phrases and accents; they're here now for good. How long will they last?

I'm stuck between your world and mine and I toggle back and forth. I never wanted to be that guy, but I don't know what that's worth. I wish that time was on my side. With that, I am on my side.

If time is borrowed, can I have it back?

If time is up, then I have killed it 'cause I had filled it with wounds to repair. But if it's ripe, well, we could take it, and maybe we would make it... is that something you could spare?

If time is linear I don't see where or what the point is (if the segments are disjointed and always moving on).
But if time is cyclical, does that mean we have another chance? Does it mean that nothing's ever truly gone?

When I pushed you away, my timeline re-centered, but you'd already entered into my innards and made me rewind.
That time is funny can't be overstated - what's that mean for me? Does that mean I'm mean? Or am I kind?
Why can't I be kind?

I'm stuck between your world and mine and I tumble back and forth. I never wanted to be that guy, but I don't know what that's worth. I miss my adult mind.

I'm stuck between your world and mine and I struggle to exist. I never wanted to be that guy, so why'd it end up like this? I miss my adult mind, but I guess that I don't mind.
