Time machines escape the fall
But cannot climb the prison wall
Nowhere to go they stumble headlong
Stumbling back to where they belong
Are you looking at my signs?
Have you noticed they're no timelines?
Can you examine them sometimes?
Time machines colliding
Back and forth reuniting
No real chance to run away
No noble voices beckon them
Have you looked at what I've found?
In the ocean where my thoughts drown
Can you walk on it sometimes?
Time machines, we'll buy them
I'll ride them with you
In the dreams of every page
And phases we go through
Are you coming to meet with us?
Will you be taking a seat with us
At any time in the future or the past?
Is there no one to care for you?
With any crosses to bear for you?
Or is the light always there for you fading fast
