Oh, what are you gonna do
When there's a part of you
That needs to chase the wind?

And the fire, of burning yesterdays
Can only light the way
To lead you from
The garden of the dark

If you listen to fools then now
It's like the chains are on
Today is never gone
Tomorrow never comes

Go on and jump, yeah
Into the hurricane
You will forget the pain
It's only there
To open up your mind

Looking at the world
Through your innocent eyes
You're seeing the promises now
They're only lies and broken dreams
Your silence screams

'Cause you're living in a time machine
And you can choose just who you are
Someone that you've never seen
Somewhere that you've never been
You're living in a time machine

Oh, what are you gonna do
When every part of you
Just needs to catch the wind?

And the fire of burning yesterdays
Can only light the way
To lead you from
The garden of the dark

Looking at the world
Through your innocent eyes
You're seeing the promises now
They're only lies and broken dreams
I hear your silent scream

You're living in a time machine
And you can choose just where to go
Somewhere that you've never been
That's somewhere you don't know

You're living in a time machine
And you can choose just who you are
Somewhere that you've never seen
Someone you've never been
You're living in a time machine
