Time to kill

Another day
Another playing field 
Survey the wreckage 
From your hamsters wheel

Twisting and turning
Till your heart’s content
Your day will slowly dawn
Then reinvent

The living dead 
Go on walkabout
The great outdoors
Wants to scream and shout

Silence gets broken
But you can't hear a word
Looking out to the crowd
Every mouth is closed

Because nothing ever happens
When you're standing still
Happy with your lot 
Without all the frills
You keep treading water
To pay those bills
Knowing when there's nothing left to do
You’ve always got some more time
Time to kill

Nothing ever happens
When it's all run of the mill
Happy standing by
While losing the will
You try to sell your soul 
When you reach the till
Knowing when there's nowhere left to go
You’ve always find some more time
Time to kill

Who knows when
We get to face brick walls
Sometimes we stop and stare
Waiting for the fall

Lines of lonely faces 
Standing in a queue
Holding out for change
To bring in something new

Watching the world
From a shadow box
Every sight and sound
Drowned by ticking clocks

Walk on eggshells
Every step of the way
Too scared to put a foot wrong
For fear of mistake

Because nothing ever happens
When you're standing still
Happy with your lot 
Without all the frills
You keep treading water
To pay those bills
Knowing when there's nothing left to do
You’ve always got some more time
Time to kill

Nothing ever happens
When it's all run of the mill
Happy standing by
While losing the will
You try to sell your soul 
When you reach the till
Knowing when there's nowhere left to go
You’ve always find some more time
Time to kill

You think you’re moving forward
Down your lonely road
The light at the end the tunnel
Tries to lighten your road

Look for a happy ending
On the production line
All you want is some peace
Some peace of mind
