lyrics

My feet are boiling, I am warming up
and I’m trying not to break down
and I’m trying not to be overwhelmed at all the thoughts skipping round in my head
cause I can’t do anything about them
them, them, them, them

I cleaned my room today, I’m like an adult grown up
and I’ve even cleaned the carpet with the machine that sucks the rubbish up
and with the clearing of the chaos comes a clarity of mind
if but for only a moment in time
Time, time, time, time

I’ve realised that I, that I, that I must die
But now is not that time
Oh I’ve always been a fatalistic child

Child, child, child, child
I’ve always been a child

There has to be a way that I can live my life and love it
and not be ruled by fear which ensures the dreaded outcome of it
and there has to be a way where I can find magic in my day
and entice it over to come and play
To play, to play, to play, to play

I’ve realised that I, that I, that I must die
But now is not that time
Oh I’ve always been a fatalistic child

I’ve realised that life, that life, that life can pass you by
But now I’ve woken up, I am awake and I am ready to participate
