Verse

I find it hard to clear my mind
Pacing back and forth
The time is wasting
Needing less but wanting more
I see the me that was before
Erasing
Chorus

How long will this go on
Verse

Standing still or spinning round
Looking up or feeling down
I'm aging
Time waits for no mortal man
The clock ticks on and only stands
For changing

Chorus

Bridge

Walking a line that's hard to walk straight
Looking for answers I guess they'll have to wait
I try to find ways to clear my head
I wish I was high but I've been low instead

Chorus
Verse

Nothing ever stays the same
Seasons turn like props that frame the stageing
Frozen memories start to thaw
Losing track of what was so engaging

Chorus
